The universe is limitless, edgeless and unending as well as ever-expanding. It has millions of star-systems including our star-system-The Milky Way. Our solar system is only a very small part of our galaxy---the Milky Way---and our home-planet-Earth-.in its turn is a very small part of the solar system.
Evidently, our earth when compared to the universe at large is just as a pebble to a huge mountain.
Isn't it a matter to be utterly curious to know about the colossal universe-its origin, shape, limit, contents, behavior, etc.? Certainly it is.
It is all these aspects of the universe that this book deals with; but in detail just sufficient for upcoming children and for the common man. Attractive illustrations are there to help grasping of the facts so that they may go quite home.
After knowing all about the universe, one is sure to feel fuller and better informed about something that is really fantastic. Won't it be a matter to feel proud of being a part of such an immense entity?
