Quote:Daniel, I assume you mean you do some reading on lunch break ? Or solar observing ? Those other books sound GREAT too. Wow.. Regarding more current stuff that anyone will enjoy if u like cosmos is The planets (bbc) and How the universe works both on Netflix streaming if you have it (and maybe YouTube). Just mentioned this in another similar thread here but since they're kind of related ... Good I need a new book.. Now I'm not sure which of the ones mentioned to get.. Excellent.
