Abstract:

Thoroughly updated and revised, In Quest of the Universe, Fifth Edition, is the most comprehensive, one-semester introductory level astronomy text available. The authors' clear, concise writing style introduces non-science majors to the general methods of science. Students will discover how science progresses as they follow the development of early astronomical concepts through to the very latest refinement of our current models. A "planets first" approach engages them in an exploration of our own solar system, starting with a chapter on the "backyard" night sky, before introducing the latest information on the Pluto controversy and recent discoveries on Mars. The Fifth Edition's encompassing approach to astronomy and the scientific method makes this text essential for introductory astronomy courses.
