This complete introduction to astronomy beyond the Solar System reveals the strange and fascinating processes occurring in the depths of space. It explores the birth of the Universe, the aging Sun, Catherine wheels, and what may lie beyond the frontiers of space. Other topics explored include the way in which astronomers have used starlight to build a picture of the life and death of stars, and how observing far distant galaxies has helped us understand our origins and the origins of the universe itself.
