Synopsis

Chemistry of Space by David E. Newton

The field of astrochemistry is constantly changing, and new space probes are sent into the solar system on a regular basis to research astronomical bodies. Chemistry of Space offers an overview of the latest information about the solar system, the planets, comets and meteors, and other features of our universe.Beginning with an explanation of the origin of the universe, otherwise known as the Big Bang theory, this new book discusses recent developments in our understanding of the chemical composition and chemical changes within new stars, comets and meteors, interstellar space, the planets, and the moon. Biographical sketches of important researchers in this field complete this enlightening volume, giving students a broader perspective of chemistry's role in space exploration.
