Amateur astronomers are scanning the night skies looking for asteroids, comets and supernovae, and making vital discoveries in our quest for knowledge. Meanwhile space missions produce millions of images, but who is to say which ones are truly unusual and interesting? It is a job that computers struggle with, but one in which humans excel. This, more than ever, is the age of the amateur astronomer, and Sir Patrick Moore explains how everybody can play a part whilst also enjoying the beautiful cosmos.

With recent developments in technology, scientists can now use physics to explore intimate details about history, from the rise and fall of preliterate societies to the origins of the solar system. The Physics of History, taught by award-winning Professor David J. Helfand of Columbia University, gives you the background you need to understand how scientists know what they do about the past. These 24 richly illustrated lectures cover an astonishing range of cases in which physics has helped redefine history—in astronomy, archaeology, geology, climatology, and other fields.

Everything we can see with our eyes and with powerful instruments—everything we think of as atom-based matter—is only 5 percent of what we know exists. The rest of the contents of the cosmos is invisible to our current methods of detection—but something out there is holding galaxies and galaxy clusters together, and something else is causing space itself to fly apart. These invisible components are dark matter and dark energy, the most eagerly studied subjects in astronomy and particle physics today.

The Sky at Night focuses all its attention on one object - M51 aka the Whirlpool Galaxy. Sitting approximately 30 million light years from Earth, this spectacular spiral galaxy was first discovered in 1773 by the French astronomer Charles Messier. It is thought to have been the inspiration behind the swirling patterns of van Gogh's Starry Night, and ever since it has fascinated astronomers and star watchers. So for this month's Sky at Night we have declared June 1st Whirlpool Galaxy Day. On this one day we will be aiming as many telescopes as possible at the galaxy.

Today, perhaps, the word "genius" is over-used, but it does describe perfectly the men who are featured in this enthralling series. Sometimes their ideas and theories were so radical, they were considered dangerous or subversive by the rulers of their day.
