Isaac Asimov gracefully explains the origin of cosmic discoveries that describe the workings and existence of our own planetary solar system, our milky way galaxy, and yes the entire universe. Isaac is more famously known for his work in science fiction but also writes mystery novels and has a strong collection of non-fiction science essays.
