This book describes our gradual awareness of a vast, previously concealed Universe. It is a story of expanding horizons and the discovery of invisible worlds. This voyage of discovery is presented within universal themes, such as invisibility, motion, content, form, impermanence, violence and emptiness, beginnings and ends. These are topics that concern us all, helping us take the Universe personally, so each chapter begins with the human aspect of some of these themes. The book is additionally broadened by including the perceptions of artists, poets and writers, as well as with line drawings that forcefully compact a scientific insight.

Recensioner i media

From the reviews: "I read astronomy books both for information and for entertainment. Rarely do I come across one that provides gobs of both. Kenneth Lang's Parting the Cosmic Veil easily makes that cut. It's also beautifully written ... . This book can be appreciated by the general reader, but its broad, imaginative scope is sure to benefit professionals too, especially those who teach. In short, this is a must read!" (Leif J. Robinson, Sky & Telescope, Vol. 113 (3), March, 2007)
