Galaxies Near and Far: A Tour Through the Realm of the Nebulae

Using real, undoctored, astronomical images as a scaffold, Richard Kron explains how we fit into our own galaxy, and how our own galaxy is but one of many island universes. He then uses helpful analogies to put it all in context, and surveys the fascinating study of galaxies that interact with another closely through gravity. He then connects his own fascinating family history to the discovery of the “cosmic web”, large-scale structure into which all these galaxies fit, and closes with a survey of what we still hope to understand about galaxies and their formation.
