Portrait

Sun Kwok is a leading world authority on the subject of astrochemistry and stellar evolution. He is best known for his theory on the origin of planetary nebulae and the death of Sun-like stars. His recent research has been on the topic of the synthesis of complex organic compounds in the late stages of stellar evolution. He is the author of many books, including The Origin and Evolution of Planetary Nebulae (2000), Physics and Chemistry of the Interstellar Medium (2007) and Organic Matter in the Universe (2012). He has been a guest observer on many space missions, including the Hubble Space Telescope and the Infrared Space Observatory. He currently serves as President of Commission 34 Interstellar Matter of the International Astronomical Union (IAU), as well as Vice President of IAU Commission 51 Bioastronomy. He served as chairman of the IAU Planetary Nebulae Working Group between 1994 and 2001, and as organizing committee member of the IAU Astrochemistry Working Group.

Pressestimmen

'In this book, Sun Kwok tells the story of the discovery process of the creation of planetary nebulae and of the future of the Sun.' Europe & Astronomy 'Despite the more than one hundred beautiful Hubble Space Telescope (HST images, this is not just another 'pretty' coffee-table book ... a good but brief discussion of the images, their acquisition with the HST and subsequent processing, rounds off this fine work ... the visual appeal of this book is enormous.' Auke Slotegraaf, MNASSA '... the highlight of this superbly produced volume is the collection of nearly 100 beautiful images of planetary nebulae - few of which were previously available.' Don Pollacco, The Observatory '... this is an excellent book. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone with an interest in one of the most fascinating classes of object in the night sky. If you want to know how the Sun will evolve in a few billion years time, this is the book to read.' Stewart Moore, The Webb Society Deep Sky Observer
