Seeds M.A. Foundations of Astronomy
10th Edition, Thomson Brooks/Cole, 2008, 667 pages

With this newly revised tenth edition of FOUNDATIONS OF ASTRONOMY, author Mike Seeds' goal is to help you use astronomy to understand science-and use science to understand what we are. Fascinating and engaging, this text will help you answer two fundamental questions: What are we? How do we know? This edition addresses the newest developments and latest discoveries in the exciting study of astronomy, including new data on Jupiter's ring system; new observations of the shapes of stars; new evidence of dark energy, quasars, and galaxy collisions; and a look inside supeova explosions. Each chapter ends with a short essay that will help you understand your own role in the astronomy you have just leaed. Guided discovery figures illustrate important ideas visually and guide you to understand relationships and contrasts interactively. Guideposts on the opening page of each chapter help you see the organization of the book by focusing on a small number of questions to be answered as you read the chapter.
