Ever since man has developed the curious ability to think, people have collectively wondered what it is they see when looking at the magnificent night sky. Countless spots of soothing white light, breaking through a dark and seemingly endless background - a truly breathtaking scenery. Only with the development of modern telescopes and spectrometers as well as the growing understanding of physical laws did mankind manage to slowly unravel the mystery. In this book you will learn the basics of how stars are born, what mechanisms power them, how they evolve and why they often die a spectacular death, leaving only a remnant of highly exotic matter. The book also delves into the methods used by astronomers to gather information from the light reaching us through the depth of space. No prior knowledge is required to follow the text and no mathematics beyond the very basics of algebra is used. By the author of "Great Formulas Explained", "Physics! In Quantities and Examples" and many other popular science e-books.
