4 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der "Sternenbote", Galileo Galileis im Jahre 1610 in Venedig publizierter Sidereus Nuncius, hat ebenso Geschichte geschrieben wie Kopernikus De revolutionibus und Newtons Principia. Erstmals wurde hier durch die Nutzung des Teleskopes deutlich, dass Gestirne wie der Mond eine ebenso zerklüftete Oberfläche besitzen wie die Erde. Zudem erkannte Galilei, dass Planeten wie der Jupiter das Zentrum eines eigenen Planetensystems bilden. Galileis Buch veränderte die Sicht des Kosmos für immer. Aus Angst davor, dass ihm die Konkurrenz zuvorkommen würde, hat Galilei sein Werk wie von Furien gehetzt produziert. Acht Wochen, nachdem er die erste Zeile geschrieben hatte, war es als fertiges Buch auf dem Markt. Die ersten Teile wurden bereits in der Druckerei gesetzt, als der zweite Teil weder erforscht noch geschrieben war. Von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite sind die Spuren dieser atemlosen Hast sichtbar geblieben, und auch hierin liegt sein unnachahmlicher Reiz
