"In its various incarnations it has been a constant companion for my entire scientific career ... Compared to the last edition, the new version of the handbook has almost double the number of pages and represents a considerable expansion of the content of each chapter."  Prof. Martin Barstow, University of Leicester. "Modern astrophysics requires the use of observations over the broadest range of wavelengths to fully understand the physical nature of the objects and processes we wish to study in the universe. .... The Handbook of Space Astronomy and Astrophysics gathers in one place the most frequentlyused information in modern astrophysics and presents it in the most useful fashion to the nonspecialist in a particular field."  Riccardo Giacconi, Nobel Laureate, 2002, Physics
