‘The Milky Way’ offers a light-hearted autobiography of our galaxy

Astronomers have written the Milky Way’s story many times over; scientists have traced violent collisions in its past and future and peered into the supermassive black hole lurking at its heart.

But astrophysicist Moiya McTier tells the story of our galaxy in a whole new way in her delightful new book, “The Milky Way: An Autobiography of Our Galaxy (opens in new tab)” (Grand Central, 2022).
