The tenth edition of Universe continues the tradition of fostering in students a deep appreciation of astronomy through clear explanations of key topics and multifaceted interactions with the material. New to this edition are ConceptChecks questions, which go beyond reading comprehension and call for applied thinking and synthesis of concepts.Biografía del autor:
