Library Journal - Library Journal
Clark, a professional astronomer, celebrates the contributions that space probes are making to today's dramatic advances in astronomy. He details the discoveries made by space-based observations of infrared, ultraviolet, and X-radiation. He also looks forward to the gains expected from launches of such tools as the Hubble Space telescope. The book is quite accessible to layreaders, and the author's enthusiasm for space-based astronomy infectious. However, some readers may end up with the misapprehension that earth-based astronomy is now of minor importance; in fact, many important results are still coming from instruments on the earth's surface. Jack W. Weigel, Univ. of Michigan Lib., Ann Arbor
