any recs for good books about space/astronomy? not anything toooo technical but i’m pretty science literate.
Phil Plait has two really great books (Bad Astronomy and Death From the Skies). Brian Cox wrote Why Does E=mc2?, The Quantum Universe (both are less space-more science, but …)as well as the Wonders of the Universe/Solar System books (the dvds are AWESOME). Also, anything by Neil DeGrasse Tyson is bound to be good (and they’re remaking Cosmos with him). Also, Mary Roach’s book Packing For Mars is great (and I loved the audiobook), but certain chapters are not for the weak of stomach. I’m sure there are more, but those are ones that I’ve either read or am familiar with the authors/scientists.
