Copernic, Kepler, Galileo and Newton, throughout 16th and 17th Centuries, a handful of curious men, scholarly astronomers, entirely transformed our way of seeing and thinking of the world. Pioneers, inventors, inspirers and agitators... but not only that. What is not widely known, is that they were also figures quite out of the ordinary, exceptional characters, truly fantastical individuals whose lives overflowed with intrigue, mystery and drama. Brought together in a single volume, the series of four biographical novels The Builders of heaven, provides these brilliant figures with flesh, blood and soul. A hymn to science, pleasure and the boldness of spirit. Jean-Pierre Luminet is an astrophysicist, and the director of research at the CNRS. An essay writer, novelist and poet, his work is enjoyed across the scientific community and by the general public.
