    Well it looks like Einstein knew what he was talking about after all begins an article published just over a week ago on the popular tech blog Engadget The subject of the article is the recently concluded Gravity Probe B mission which was carried out by NASA for six years to test the general theory of relativity described by Albert Einstein The blog post although considerably simplified is still redolent of a

    This book has the look and feel and heft of a very large board book At first it felt and appeared rather strange to me but it worked for these photos and storyThere is some real scientific information in this book about black holes and actual impressive photos taken via NASA and the Hubble Space TelescopeThe story about this Icarus is that he gets not too close to the sun but too close to a black hole I thought

A futuristic reimaging of the classic Greek myth as a boy ventures through deep space a. A board book for all ages Briane Greene s Icarus at the Edge of Time is a futuristic reinvention of the Greek myth of Icarus the boy who disregarded his father s advice and flew too near the sun Like his ancient counterpart our Icarus is the son of innovative men who finds himself trapped in a prison of his father s making In his case that prison is the Proxima a starship dispatched from Earth on a multi generational voyage to contact another sentient species A brilliant young man Icarus resents the idea that he will live and die aboard the Proxima and in a rash act of defiance decides to explore a passing black holeAs someone with an abiding interest in mythology and the ways in which it is continuously reinvented as well as a great fondness for space opera of the Star Trek variety I was uite intrigued when a friend recommended this book to me Gorgeously illustrated with photographs of various cosmic phenomena taken by the Hubble Space Telescope this chunky picture book explores Einstein s prediction that time will slow down as one approaches a black hole while also offering a meditative picture of human impatience and our impulse to explore I was actually rather surprised to find myself so moved by Greene s narrative and wish that I was acuainted with some young astronomer to whom I could give this title

Nd challenges the awesome power of black holes The beauty of the book lies in the image. Every time I shelve books at a certain library branch my shoulder hits this oversize book It s bright and colorful but I m always too busy to pull it off the shelf and look Today I made the time Based on the Greek Myth of Icarus but set during a futuristic space exploration this book is stellar excuse the pun Not only as you read this cautionary legend are you educated in the in the mysteries of black holes and the importance of listening to your parents but you will enjoy glittering pictures of galaxies and nebulas that will stir your inner scientist and inspire your soul

S provided by NASA and the Hubble Space telescope and printed on board rather than pape. This is a very cool mix of mythology science fiction and science all in a board book for children It s the story of Icarus who doesn t fly too close to the sun in this version but rather the edge of a black hole He is a member of the Proxima s crew and the families on this ship have left Earth to find other life in the galaxy knowing that generations will be born and die on their ship before they reach their destination Icarus is a few generations in and wants to be something than a link in a chain so he ventures out into space and circles the edge of black hole only to suffer an unusual fateThis book uses pictures from the Hubble Space Telescope as a backdrop to a fairly short story A scientific explanation and theories finish up the story The book is a little misleading I tend to think of board books as for very young children but I think the story will appeal to mid and upper elementary school kids
