Lavishly illustrated with both historic images and the latest satellite photography, Discovering the Universe tells the story of humanity's quest to unlock the secrets of our cosmos. Beginning with the musing of Stone Age peoples on the position of the stars and planets, it then moves through the ages to Galileo’s first visions of Orion, to the Moon landing, and right up to awe-inspiring photos of our magnificent universe sent from the Planck telescope.
