Explore World Space Week with Cambridge
Ross Taylor is the author of new book Destiny or Chance Revisited, which takes the reader on a tour of the Universe, exploring planets outside the solar system and the search for another Earth-like planet.
In an interview with Cambridge, Ross Taylor explains the difficulties in writing the book, what first sparked his interest in the cosmos, and what he considers his greatest accomplishment. Read the interview here.
Another Cambridge book that encourages readers to think about life off the surface of the Earth is Turn Left at Orion: a guide to hundreds of astronomical objects, to make the most of any type of backyard telescope, anywhere in the world.
The recently launched Turn Left at Orion website, by the authors of the book, Guy Consolmagno and Dan M.Davis, has information on upcoming eclipses, guides to finding the brightest planets, and alternative versions of each chart in the book to cater for different viewing locations and types of telescope.
World Space Week was declared by the UN General Assembly in 1999 to celebrate, at an international level, the contributions of space science and technology to the betterment of the human condition.
