Universal: A Journey Through the Cosmos

£9.99

We dare to imagine a time before the Big Bang, when the entire Universe was compressed into a space smaller than an atom. And now, as Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw show, we can do more than imagine: we can understand. Over the centuries, the human urge to discover has unlocked an incredible amount of knowledge. What it reveals to us is breathtaking. This book takes us on an epic journey of scientific exploration and, in doing so, reveals how we can all understand some of the most fundamental questions about our Earth, Sun, solar system and the star-filled galaxies beyond.

Description

‘Inspirational’ Buzz Aldrin

When exactly did life begin? What really happened during the big bang – and before it? Is the universe expanding? Is dark matter real? Do we live in one of many worlds? What’s more, how can we prove any of this?

This book is all about how we – any of us – can gain an understanding of the Universe in all its awe-inspiring glory. Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw take us on an epic journey of scientific exploration, revealing how the biggest questions – from the size of the earth to the distance to the stars – are answerable from our own back gardens.

You don’t need a Large Hadron Collider or a Hubble Space Telescope to explore the cosmos. You just need this book.
