A Little Book of Stars

From earliest times the stars have had a profound effect on human life and thought. The Ancient Greeks saw in them their great heroes and legends, while astrologers believed their movements determined human and terrestrial affairs. Today scientists are more concerned with such exotica as supergiants, pulsars, black holes and the possibility of other life forms. All these aspects of the stars are explored in this fascinating introduction to the wonders of the night sky.
