Book Review – The Space Book

space_book_cover.book previewThis morning LTD announced that he wanted to be a doctor when he grows up. This is curious because last week he wanted to be an astronaut. One of his interests (when he isn’t running around naked) is space with a concentration on the planets. Professor Jim Bell’s new tome, The Space Book: From the Beginning to the End of Time, 250 Milestones in the History of Space & Astronomy features planets and so much more. The heavy book is presented in chronological order starting with the Big Bang in 1.37 Billion BCE and goes up to the near future. Each spread opens with the event and explanation on the left and a bright amazing photo on the right. Scientists and astronomers are highlighted with their achievements but the real magic is in the awesome photos of spiral galaxies, Quasars and Uranus (come on that’s potty mouth). The text is way above LTD’s clearance level, but it’s cool for me to understand so that I can simplify it for him. Or to be more accurate for him to some day read it and explain it to me.
