Astronomy : At Play in the Cosmos Paperback


Astronomy: At Play in the Cosmos brings popular science writing to a textbook.

In every chapter, author Adam Frank-a co-writer of the NPR blog "13.7 Cosmos and Culture"-integrates two interviews with leading scientists, a fascinating second voice that drives the narrative while making astronomy feel immediate, relevant, and real for students, and still capturing science's human nature.
