Description:

In six chapters and 268 pages, this easy to understand book informs the reader about the astronomy that is not known to people. It introduces readers to one of the branches of modern astrophysics, through the exploration of X-rays. X-ray photons reveal the existence of extremely energetic processes in the universe and these processes are the basis of the formation, dynamics, and evolution of celestial objects of all types. The reader will learn about X-ray stars, new objects that emit X-rays, X-ray telescope detectors, new X-ray detectors, the background diffuse X-ray radiation, the use of CCD detectors, the AXAF program of NASA and much more. This book contains illustrations in black and white and images in color that help the reader visualize some of the concepts.
