When human beings discovered that the planet they inhabit was not alone in the universe, they had an enormous eagerness to know how the earth was conformed. Astronomy had its foundations in philosophers like Aristotle, one of its promoters. Then, he was followed by men who transformed the vision of the space we inhabit. Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Nicolas Copernicus, are some of the names that have stood out in the study of cosmos. Many of them even had to face current conceptions of their time, until they almost became marginal. Today, astronomy has become a science with a profound life of its own.

The section that Euston96 Thematic Encyclopedia dedicates to astronomy, has definitions, theories and laws. Here you can learn about the different bodies that inhabit the universe: planets, stars, comets, satellites, laws that govern their movements, in addition to introducing us to the journeys that have allowed us to expand knowledge frontiers of the universe. In each topic addressed, readers will find excellent graphic material that allows them to expand their knowledge.
