Overview:

The Sun's Heartbeat : The Beating Heart of the Sun is the very pulse of life on Earth. And from the ancients who plotted its path at Stonehenge to the modern scientists who unraveled the nuclear fusion reaction that turns mass into energy, humankind has sought to solve its mysteries. In this lively biography of the Sun, Bob Berman ranges from its stellar birth to its spectacular future death with a focus on the wondrous and enthralling as well as on the heartbreaking sacrifice, laughable errors, egotistical battles, and brilliant inspirations of the people who have tried to understand the Sun's power. Peppered with mind-blowing facts and memorable anecdotes about spectral curiosities - the recently discovered the solar surface, the eerie majesty of a total solar eclipse - The Sun's Heartbeat offers a robust and entertaining narrative of how the sun has shaped humanity and our understanding of the universe.
