The product of my last few months’ writing, The New Cosmos: Answering Astronomy’s Big Questions, will be published this November by Cambridge University Press.

It’ll consist of about 100,000 words and 100 color photos on hot developing topics in astrophysics, cosmology, and planetary science of the last 10 to 15 years, including:

How the Sun will die; the end of life on Earth; the history of water on Mars; why Venus turned inside-out; how the Moon formed; Pluto’s planetary status; the explosion of exoplanets; the Milky Way’s barred spiral structure; the eventual collision of Andromeda with the Milky Way; the latest on the Big Bang; the size of the universe; the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy; the nature of black holes; the fate of the universe; and the meaning of life in the cosmos.

The book will feature a foreword by the noted astrophysicist Alex Filippenko.

And here is a cover!
