Astronomy can be considered the oldest scientific study. Since the beginning of time, people have looked to the stars to explain the world around them. Encompassing disciplines as diverse as astrophysics, celestial mechanics, extragalactic astrophysics, and planetary astronomy, the study of space and astronomy has come a long way. From the invention of the telescope to the development of the Copernican theory, from KeplerOCOs laws of planetary motion to space exploration, the 10 people profiled in this volume all made major improvements in the study of space and astronomy. Each chapter contains relevant information on the scientist's childhood, research, discoveries, and lasting contributions to the field and concludes with a chronology and a list of print and Internet references specific to that individual."
