400 years astronomy – 400 years that changed our view of the world. With the invention of the telescope in 1609, the Italian researcher Galileo Galilee was the first person to make breathtaking discoveries in space and to dislodge the view of the world held until then. And he wasn’t the only one: in later years, too, better and better telescopes revolutionized our view of the world several times. For the „International Year of Astronomy“, which is being celebrated around the globe in 2009, the Dutch science author Govert Schilling presents a gorgeous coffee-table book. On more than 250 pages he introduces the biggest astronomical discoveries and in doing so, introduces historical findings, along with current research results. From Galilee’s first gaze through the telescope to the discovery of galaxies, up to the current Big Bang scenario, the reader follows in the footsteps of the greatest astronomers and can at the same time gain an understanding for what the condition of our universe
