Books that unravel the mysteries of the universe, oceans, and museums

unravelling the mysteries of the universe
Unravelling the mysteries of the universe has been a human fascination since the beginning of time. From recording observations of stars, planets, and celestial sights to space travel, and even ideas of living in Mars has crossed the human mind. This book is a beautiful way for us to learn about the things we've wondered by understanding the science behind the mysteries.

Similar to the other books in this series The Wonders of Nature and An Anthology of Intriguing Animals, this book The Mysteries of the Universe has a satin ribbon bookmark, attractive cover, and gold coated page edges. Readers of all ages will love flipping through the beautiful pages that explore more than 100 celestial objects from planets and asteroids to black holes and galaxies. The illustrations, close-up images, and incredible photography will illuminate imaginations and spark curious minds to explore the vastness of space, leaving the reader fascinated and curious to find out more about the beauty and mystery of our universe. 

The engaging storybook-style descriptions and simple text with facts, myths, and key discoveries about the universe was not only fun to read, but also reminded us of our magical nights of seeing meteor showers/ shooting stars. As well as the night we observed constellations and objects at Long Point Eco Adventures in Norfolk County, the planetarium visit in Montreal and the space themed exhibitions at the Ontario Science Centre and the Aga Khan museum, and our meteorite explorations in Sudbury. It has also rekindled our hopes of travelling to observe the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights that Babylonian astronomers first recorded sighting in 567 BCE. 
oceanology
We find peace by the lakes and excitement by the sea, and most of the time when we look and admire the water we don't think about the extraordinary life under these ecosystems. Over the past several years, humans have continued to throw mounds of garbage in the ocean without thinking of the consequences. Now, our oceans are polluted and wildlife are suffering, so it is crucial that we gain knowledge about what lives underwater and how our actions have not only affected the lives in the ocean we are still discovering, but also how our livelihood is threatened because of acidification, overfishing, and pollution. 
oceanology
Oceanology is an informative beautiful introduction to marine life and the ocean environment that brings the riches of the underwater world onto the printed page. The photography reveals an abundance of life, from microscopic plankton to great whales, seaweed to starfish.
