- The Alchemy of the Heavens
"The Alchemy of the Heavens" is a book by
Ken Croswell. It gives an account of how astronomers in the 20th century worked out that we were living in a galaxy, and where its centre was. Also the transmutation of elements in stars – that's the "alchemy", entirely scientific.
