By Isaac Asimov
EXPLODING STARS…AND THE foundation OF lifestyles ON EARTH
What is the tale of the supernova? while the universe was once born a few 15 billion years in the past, the “big bang” produced substantial clouds of hydrogen and helium. the place did every little thing else come from—all the heavier components, the planets, the star-strewn galaxies? Very fresh astronomical learn and new meteorite stories point out that the reply lies within the center of supernovas, the massive risky suns whose vast convulsions and gigantic explosions are the biggest and such a lot shattering occasions within the universe. Isaac Asimov, the main largely learn technology author of our time, explains that out of the center of supernovas have come our solar, planets, and eventually, lifestyles and man.
