And so the cosmos ends. Not in fire but in ice. And not with a bang, but with a whimper. Have a nice day! And, welcome to the universe.

Neil deGrasse Tyson


Learning about the vastness of the universe has never been easier or more enticing.

Written by director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City Neil deGrasse Tyson and his partners Michael A. Strauss, and J. Richard Gott, the book explores our current understanding of the universe.

Strauss and Gott are both professors of astrophysical sciences at Princeton University.

As one might expect, putting our knowledge of the universe into perspective in both time and space is a monumental task — but fear not.

The authors not only explore the stars, the possibility of extraterrestrial life, and the origins of the universe, but they do so in an accessible and relatable way.
