    The History Press 2013; US$ 14.57

    Examines the multfarious theories of how and when the world can end, from St Augustine to the Millennium Bug, via Nostradamus.

At magnitude 10, Gliese 581 is visible to amateur observers but does not stand out. So what makes this star so important? It is that professional observers have confirmed that it has... more...

    When Ferdinand Magellan set out to circumnavigate the globe in 1519, he wasn’t able to bring a digital camera or a smartphone with him.
