The Farmer’S Guide to Astronomy

by B. E Chenault (Author)

The book is meant for people with little knowledge of astronomy or space exploration and will give them a basic understanding of the disciplines by examining their most interesting aspects and combining them with the human experience; such as explaining how a person can walk at 18,000 miles an hour or telling the story of a woman who after she was struck by an asteroid was determined to sell the space rock and become rich but instead lost everything because of her greed or the first account of the man who fell to Earth, 20 miles above the surface traveling more than 800 miles an hour while his frightened mother watched on the ground going through fits to remain composed in front of international cameras.
