The Illustrated Atlas of the Universe - Mark A Garlick & Wil Tirion

  Every morning, in my breakfeast, I'm readding for a minuts this images book.

  Did you know, for exemple, that...

  ...Neptune became the most distant planet of all? -just 30 times farther from the Sun than Earth-. From this far out, the Sun is some 900 times fainter than we are used to on Earth.

  1. Ostras!! Qué nivel!! Pero así, en frío no entiendo nada... qué pena no saber idiomas y mira que me prometí aprender alguno... espero algún día hacerlo, dicen que nunca es tarde si la dicha es buena.

  2. Bueno,... todo es ponerse. Y para ponerse, hay que tener ganas de hacerlo. Yo no sé mucho inglés; el justo para leerlo; el justo para mal-hablarlo y el justo para no entender absolutamente nada de lo que oigo.

    Pero, leerlo y entenderlo... Me encanta.


  3. Astronomy is always much more impressive through pictures than an huge book with long explanations. Later, if you're still interested, you can try reading more complex books.

    Did you know, for example, that the hole you can observe in the Rosetta Nebula was produced by the collapse of the stars that currently shines in the centre of the nebula?

    P.S.: thanks for give me an opportunity to practice English...

    P.S..: Q'ua guzto mi quedau, rediez! ;-)
