Cosmic Odyssey by Jean Heidmann

The immensity of the cosmos, the richness of the universe, the limits of space and of time: these are the themes of Cosmic Odyssey, which takes the reader on imaginary journeys through the past, present and future of our universe. After a first look at the starry night sky, the enigmas posed since ancient times by the universe are reviewed. There then follows a broadbrush view of the universe as we understand it today.
