Did you know that scientists are beginning to think that the sun is safer than sunscreen? That whenever we see the sun on the horizon, it’s actually a phantom image because the sun has already set? That career pilots have a one percent higher incidence of cancer because of their time in the sky? Or that the sun’s unusual dormancy is causing our climate to be cooler than it otherwise would be?

Peppered with memorable anecdotes about spectral curiosities, THE SUN’S HEARTBEAT is a robust narrative that explores the sun’s birth, its life as a self-sustaining ultra-H-Bomb fusion explosion, and its spectacular future death. Astronomer Bob Berman’s expert observations tell a dramatic story about the familiar star that crosses our sky daily.
