Bring Deep Space Home (Synopsis)

“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.” –Carl Sagan

For thousands of years, humanity has looked up at the night sky and wondered at what might be out there. For the first time in all of our history, we not only have the answers to what’s present in the Universe, we not only know the nature of most objects we see (and infer), but we even have images and true-to-life (we think) illustrations of them all.

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a book out there that made it accessible in an easy-to-read format for people of all ages? That’s exactly what acclaimed science writer Govert Schilling has done with his latest book: Deep Space: Beyond the Solar System to the End of the Universe and the Beginning of Time.

    What about beyond the space allocated for future expansion of our knowledge of the universe? We know of a very big empty gap on the border of our universe as we presently understand and define, without any galaxies, stars and relates matters and energies. Would the expansion go own for ever?
