HOW WAS THE UNIVERSE BORN?
From the Big Bang to the Big Crunch: How did the Universe begin? And how will it end? Was there a time before it was born? How do we look back in time by seeing to the edge of space? How can we tell if the Universe is getting bigger or smaller? Isaac Asimov asks all the big questions—and proposes possible answers—in this guide to the greatest array of fact and mystery imaginable: our Universe.
This is a good introduction to cosmogony for young readers with lots of colorful, pretty pictures. Older readers might prefer, however, Asimov’s New Guide to Science or something of its nature to get information on the subject.
