Essential Cosmic Perspective with MasteringAstronomyÂ®, The (6th Edition) - ISBN 9780321715364 offer an intriguing commentary on our place as humans in the universe, understanding motion, energy, and gravity, reading messages from the cosmos through light and matter, and using telescopes as portals of discovery.
