Summary
Catch the thrill of the cosmos and space science through the life of Neil deGrasse Tyson-the popular astrophysicist, science communicator, and host of FOX-TV's Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. In language neither too simple nor overly technical, author CAP Saucier interweaves up-to-date information about the universe and the science of astrophysics with a biographical portrait of the famous astrophysicist. Quotes from Tyson appear throughout each chapter, personalizing the science. Illustrated with striking images from the Hubble Space Telescope, the story of one man's successful life in space science may inspire kids to follow a similar path. As Tyson makes clear, there is still much to do for future space scientists: diverting asteroids, unraveling the mystery of dark matter, finding life elsewhere in the universe, and more!
Summary
Featuring images from the Hubble Space Telescope, traces the life and career of the astrophysicist while providing an introduction to the universe and the science of astronomy
