There are 1 billion trillion stars in the observable universe. Each
star is born and dies, with a unique story to tell. It's a journey
that our own Sun began some 4.6 billion years ago. Cosmic Clouds
3-D: Where Stars Are Born takes readers to the birthplace of
stars -- in nebule, which are beautiful clouds of dust and that are
scattered throughout most galaxies. The book features hundreds of
stunning images of nebulae captured by ground-based and space
telescopes in unique stereo views that show these stellar nurseries
in three dimensions.
