Beschreibung:

Stars Above, Earth Below examines a range of astronomical topics in relation to the landscapes, processes and cultures which can be seen and experienced within US National Parks. The geological features readers can see are linked to the very latest NASA spacecraft discoveries on other planets and their moons.
Come see the Milky Way.- Black hole Sun.- Tides on a cosmic shore.- Worlds of fire and ice.- Red rock planet.- Glaciers and Goldilocks: a tale of three planets.- Autumn Moon.- Our cosmic connection.- Worlds without number.- Far away and long ago: the Universe before you.- Starry sky national park.
Stars Above, Earth Below uses photographs and sky charts to form a connection between what is seen on the ground and in the sky, and looks at the deeper scientific meaning behind these sights.  Nordgren describes other objects in the Solar System with features similar to those on Earth and links the geological features seen in the national parks to the very latest NASA spacecraft discoveries on other planets and their moons.  Additionally, historical context is discussed to show why we humans (who have lived in and around our national parts for tens of thousands of years) have always been astronomers.
