View Wishlist. Similarly effervescent ecosystems of hot young stars and fluorescing nebulae delineate the graceful spiral arms in our Galaxy's swirling disk. Beyond the disk, the spheroidal halo hosts the ponderous — and still mysterious — dark matter that outweighs everything else.
Another dark mystery lurks deep in the heart of the Milky Way, where a supermassive black hole has produced bizarre phenomena seen at multiple wavelengths. Waller makes the case that our very existence is inextricably linked to the Galaxy that spawned us. Through The Milky Way: An Insider's Guide , readers can become well-informed galactic "insiders" — ready to imagine humanity's next steps as fully engaged citizens of the Milky Way.
