The Truth Is Out There

https://pelicanist.blogspot.com/2020/02 ... there.html

Quote:
This book charts the evolution of astronomy from sky watching to observatories throughout history and delivers an informative understanding of the primitive to the technological marvels used today to reveal the secrets of our Universe. The author shares her experience of astronomers that now routinely scan the cosmos for objects that existed from nearly the beginning of time: “There is stardust in your veins. We are literally, ultimately children of the stars”
