Photos from Eicher New York talk, and a nice book comment!

Thanks so much to Stan Honda of the Amateur Astronomers Association in New York for shooting these images of my talk at the American Museum of Natural History last week. I had a wonderful time and spoke at great length about subjects from my upcoming book, The New Cosmos, due out in November.

I also received a lovely quotation from Alan Stern, who was gracious enough to read the book manuscript. Alan is, of course, the well-known principal investigator of the New Horizons Pluto mission we all have enjoyed so much this year.

Here is Alan’s reaction:

The New Cosmos by David Eicher is a wonderful read! This wonderfully written, accessible, authoritative new book spans the breadth of major topics in early twenty-first century astronomy, engaging the reader in every chapter. I haven’t seen a better book surveying modern astronomy in a decade. I highly recommend this masterpiece as a gift to yourself or anyone interested in space and astronomy!”


Information about the book can be found on Amazon and on Cambridge University Press’ site.
