Summary
Dazzling, beautiful, powerful, mysterious - the Sun has fascinated people throughout history. This book charts our changing understanding of the Sun through a rich collection of scientific imagery; from the first sketch of a sunspot by a twelfth-century monk, to awe-inspiring close-ups of a turbulent star taken by orbiting spacecraft. Each image tells a story of evolving scientific understanding and techniques, as well as the personal dedication of the theologians, artists and astronomers who made them.00Exhibition: Science Museum, London, UK (06.10.2018-06.05.2019)
