Have you ever been curious about the wonders of the universe but didn't know where to start? Space is a fascinating topic for people of all ages, but it can also seem overwhelming. Many of us consult a travel guide when we take a trip to an unknown land, and the same can be done for the cosmos. The authors of a recently released guide to the universe will orient you with what you need to know before setting off on a trip into the solar system and well beyond, for the beginner as well as the savvy cosmic traveler. Enjoy a backstage pass to some of the most exciting events that our Universe has to offer.

This is a great lecture for budding amateur astronomers, adults and kids alike.
