Description

This revised Second Edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Astronomy contains over 4,300 up-to-date entries covering all aspects of astronomy. Compiled with the help of over 20 expert contributors under the editorship of author and broadcaster Ian Ridpath, Oxford's Dictionary of Astronomy covers everything from space exploration and the equipment involved, astrophysics, cosmology, and the concept of time.

The dictionary also includes biographical entries on eminent astronomers, as well as worldwide coverage of observatories and telescopes. Supplementary material is included in the appendices, such as tables on the Apollo lunar landing missions and the constellations, a table of planetary data, and others. Entries have been fully revised and updated for this edition, and new entries have been added to reflect the recent developments within the field of astronomy.
