Are we alone in the Universe? Where did the Moon come from? How do we know what stars are made of? Could there really be a future in asteroid mining?

Watson presents the most up-to-date knowledge on everything from light echoing around the cosmos, the mechanics of black holes and how to navigate the hidden delights of nightfall, to the most profound questions facing humankind. With mind-bending stories from the frontiers of science, Cosmic Chronicles is an expert’s view of what we know and how we know it. 


‘Fred Watson's new book, Cosmic Chronicles: A user’s guide to the Universe, is a superb romp through the historical, cultural and scientific astronomical phenomena that surround us every day. Fred is a national treasure for his witty and incisive descriptions of science, fun and interesting to all. The book spans medieval astronomers to NASA deep space missions and even includes Goldilocks and The Terminator (revealed as serene and even romantic). Enjoy!’ — Col. Pamela A. Melroy, USAF (ret.), former NASA Astronaut


Full of science and wonder, this book will leave you looking upwards.’ — Richard Glover, ABC Radio


'Watson sifts and orders a most extensive range of material, then makes it all readily understandable...This book genuinely deserves a readership spanning all ages and many levels of prior expertise.' — Mark Thomas, Canberra Times
