  Breath-taking

By National Geographic - that says it all! Great color, images, angles. It also goes into some details concerning the technical and historical side of scientific discoveries. Best of all, its not eurocentric. It's balanced and gives credit wherever it's due. It gives 2 whole pages to Meg Nath Saha. I take off 1 star because, for the price tag, the book should have more pages.
 
  Beyond Earth: Mapping the Universe

With the opening of "The Explore the Universe" gallery at The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in September 2001, David DeVorkin (Editor) has assembled an impressive volume,"Beyond Earth: Mapping the Universe". In full color thirteen specialists have written chapters dealing with "The Classical Universe", "The Modern Universe Emerges" and "The Current Universe". Using present day tools astronomers are now attacking the same old unsolved problems.
This volume should be in the library of all Physical Scientists.
