About the author :

The godfather of science fiction, Isaac Asimov is the genre s undisputed master and one of the most prolific authors of all time. From his famous Foundation trilogy to his later stories, Asimov took fiction to new, strange, and often wondrous places.


A wide-ranging exploration of our universe — from "what makes the wind blow?" to "how was the moon formed?" — in questions-and-answer format, written in vintage Asimov style. "A fine introduction to modern astronomical theory." — LIBRARY JOURNAL

Anyone baffled by black holes or bewildered by the big bang can get understandable answers from this expertly researched reference containing more than 100 essential questions about the universe. From what makes the wind blow to how the moon was formed, here are real science questions and answers from one of the astronomical names in science fiction and fact.

Library Journal

Asimov has now published at least 460 books and his list continues to grow. In this one, he tells us what scientists know today about the nature of the universe. He does so through 111 short (two- or three-page) chapters, each headed by a simple question: ``What is sunlight?''; ``What are stars?''; ``How old is the universe?''; etc. The answers include historical background and current theory, presented in simple, easy-to-read terms. Although most of this is familiar ground to regular readers of scientific books and magazines, it is a fine introduction to modern astronomical theory for the intellectually curious high school student or intelligent but scientifically illiterate adult.-- Harold D. Shane, Baruch Coll., CUNY
