Summary
"Dr. Terenzi shows that most of us have heretofore contemplated only portions of the majesty of the cosmos. In Heavenly Knowledge, she presents clear and accessible scientific facts, then goes much farther: she also makes unique connections between the way we live our daily lives and the vast universe that surrounds us. Through her telescope, Dr. Terenzi brings to life a sensual universe where comets roar through space, spreading life like the process of human reproduction; the hidden galactic core becomes a metaphor for self-knowledge; and dying stars act out great truths of being, nothingness, and rebirth."--BOOK JACKET. "To contemplate the cosmos is a staggeringly beautiful and awe-inspiring experience, as Dr. Terenzi demonstrates through dozens of dazzling illustrations. But her impassioned message is that the greater significance of the celestial order is found not through the eyes, but within the heart."--BOOK JACKET
