520    The story of the people who see beyond the stars  Humans 
       from the earliest civilizations were spellbound by the 
       night sky-craning their necks each night, they used the 
       stars to orient themselves in the large, strange world 
       around them. Stargazing is a pursuit that continues to 
       fascinate us: from Copernicus to Carl Sagan, astronomers 
       throughout history have spent their lives trying to answer
       the biggest questions in the universe. Now, award-winning 
       astronomer Emily Levesque shares the stories of modern-day
       stargazers, the people willing to adventure across high 
       mountaintops and to some of the most remote corners of the
       planet, all in the name of science.  From the lonely quiet
       of midnight stargazing to tall tales of wild bears loose 
       in the observatory, The Last Stargazers is a love letter 
       to astronomy and an affirmation of the crucial role that 
       humans can and must play in the future of scientific 
       discovery.  In this sweeping work of narrative science, 
       Levesque shows how astronomers in this scrappy and 
       evolving field are going beyond the machines to infuse 
       creativity and passion into the stars and inspires us all 
       to peer skyward in pursuit of the universe's secrets.
