From the newest dramatic images transmitted by the Hubble Telescope towards the possibility of fossil life from Mars, space stories are hitting the headlines as never before. the DK Space Encyclopedia celebrates our newfound status as citizens of the universe, rather than mere inhabitants of planet Earth. Just a number of decades ago, these planets were fuzzy disks even the world's biggest telescopes. as we begin the third millennium, more and a lot more folks are looking outside out world for a truly cosmic vision from the future. Equipment employed by today's amateurs -- such as computers and charge-coupled devices that amplify light -- is much more sophisticated than that available to professionals just a generation ago. On a practical level, access to space has transformed the way we live. Like Renaissance navigators who sailed uncharted oceans, our probes happen to be discovering"new worlds"-- in this case, not strange continents but our neighboring planets. Comprehensive and thoroughly up to date, the DK Space Encyclopedia may be the definitive guide to the cosmos. Now they are future destinations for humankind, with mountains, valleys, canyons, volcanoes, atmospheres, and possible even primitive life-forms. Unlike brain surgery, astronomy is on the list of couple of sciences in which the amateur can play an active -- even essential -- role. As a result, backyard stargazers are able to complement the function accomplished by top scientists at the world's greatest observatories and by the Hubble Space Telescope. The defining achievements in the 20th century has been the exploration of space. communications, weather forecasting, mineral prospecting, and also warfare are all now controlled from Earth orbit. The DK Space Encyclopedia consists of a detailed section on practical astronomy, with clear star maps,advice on what to observe, and even directions for producing a basic telescope. The DK Space Encyclopedia shows that anybody can grow to be an astronomer: The sky's the limit. and out more distant forays into space have yielded astonishing rewards.
