About the book:
For millennia, humans struggled to make sense of what's out there in the Universe, from all we can see to that which lies beyond the limits of even our most powerful telescopes. “Beyond the Galaxy” traces our journey from an ancient, Earth-centered Universe all the way to our modern, 21st century understanding of the cosmos. Touching on not only what we know but also how we know it, Ethan Siegel takes us to the very frontiers of modern astrophysics and cosmology, from the birth of our Universe to its ultimate fate, and everything in between.
"Whether you are learning about the Universe for the first time, taking an introductory course or looking for the latest update on modern developments in the story of what we know about the Universe and how we've come to know it, this book is designed to start at the very beginning of human exploration and take you through the most important developments that led to our present understanding of all there is," Siegel said.
