DESCRIPTION

Five thousand years of stargazing have taken us from a ring of stones to a ring collider, as we map the heavens and label quarks in search of the beginning of time and space, that magical moment when nothing became something.

This deck of forty-eight cards uses a Q&A format to introduce the major scientists and breakthroughs in the history of astronomy, asking you, for example, to identify the most sophisticated astronomers of the ancient world, trace interplanetary radio signals, and explain how dark matter was discovered.

We have only just begun to understand the cosmos, but this compact primer will bring you up to date on everything from the speed of light to dark energy.

These 48 fact-filled Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards.
