The Sun's Heartbeat Giveaway (ends 9/10)


Publisher's Summary. The beating heart of the sun is the very pulse of life on earth. And from the ancients who plotted its path at Stonehenge to the modern scientists who unraveled the nuclear fusion reaction that turns mass into energy, humankind has sought to solve its mysteries. In this lively biography of the sun, Bob Berman ranges from its stellar birth to its spectacular future death with a focus on the wondrous and enthralling, and on the heartbreaking sacrifice, laughable errors, egotistical battles, and brilliant inspirations of the people who have tried to understand its power.

  22. This book sounds fascinating. I feel like so much attention, discussion etc. is focused on the other planets and the sun gets pushed aside so I'm thrilled to see what this book has to say!
