The End and the Beginning, who turned off the light?

November on the northern hemisphere is often dreary, cold and dark. But when the skies are clear can watch the stars quite early.

Books allow us to travel not just to nice places on earth but to the dawn of time and the end of the universe. Our Bookdragon SandyJ found on her travels several interesting books. For the beginning of the universe she recommends Emma Chapman‘s „First Light – Switching on the Stars at the Dawn of Time“. While Katie Mack takes us to „The End of Everything – Astrophysically Speaking“. Two accomplished female scientists who write with a sense of humour, even November has its perks.
