The Mapping of the HeavensBook - 1995
Throughout history, people have sought ways in which to "map" the heavens. These efforts have often resulted in very beautiful documents. The Mapping of the Heavens reproduces over eighty such documents in full color to reveal some of the ways in which the underlying structure of the universe has been conceived and explained. With examples ranging from the Stone Age to the Space Age, it offers a challenging and entertaining exploration of the tension between the rigors of science and the continuing search for cause, certainty, and harmony in the universe.
