From Aristotle's crystalline celestial spheres to the latest quantum theories of the evolution of the universe, humankind has sought to comprehend the enormities of cosmic space and time. Coming of Age in the Milky Way, the long-awaited new book by award-winning science writer Timothy Ferris, is the story of that quest.

It interweaves majestic themes of astronomy, physics, religion, and philosophy with fresh and lasting portraits of the men and women who created what has been called our society's most priceless treasure its conception of the universe at large." -- front fold over blurb.
