Hey /sci/, what are some good books you recommend over aerospace engineering, astronomy, astrophysics, etc?
OP's pic related is pretty amazing
I personally recommend "How to Build a Habitable Planet" by Langmuir and Broecker, but it's more about planetary geology than astronomy. The first few chapters have some good astronomy shit though. Covers nucleosynthesis, stellar life cycle, accretion, etc.
An Astronauts' Guide was an engineer jerking himself off. Seriously never read such self-congratulatory bullshit in my entire life. If Chris Hadfield was missing some ribs he would suck himself off hourly
well its not called 'an engineers guide to understanding space travel' mate its pretty obvious even just reading the title that its going to be an astronaut giving you tips on succeeding in life
>Seriously never read such self-congratulatory bullshit in my entire life.
So I take it you don't read your own posts then?
