Astronomers today believe that the Universe may have begun 13.7 billion years ago, when its entire energy, mass, space, and even time, expanded out from a single point. Every scientific discovery about space and the stars their beginnings as well as our own derives from this ancient light. Jackson examines astronomy's turning points, times when years of accumulated thought converged upon one astronomer's obsession, to turn a confounding puzzle into a discovery that changed the way we see the world. What are today's mysteries yet to be solved? Where will they lead? What will be the next discovery?
