Description - Extreme Cosmos by Bryan Gaensler

The universe is all about extremes. Space has a temperature 270 DegreesC below freezing. Stars die in catastrophic supernova explosions a billion times brighter than the Sun. A black hole can generate 10 million trillion volts of electricity. And hypergiants are stars 2 billion kilometres across, larger than the orbit of Jupiter. Extreme Cosmos provides a stunning new view of the way the Universe works, seen through the lens of extremes: the fastest, hottest, heaviest, brightest, oldest, densest and even the loudest. This is an astronomy book that not only offers amazing facts and figures but also reveals the remarkable richness of the universe and the incredible physics that modern astronomy has unveiled.
