ISBN10: 0670031798

Summary: Alpha and Omega is a dispatch from the front lines of the cosmological revolution that is being waged at observatories and laboratories around the world - in Europe, in America, and even in Antarctica - where scientists are actually peering into both the cradle of the universe and its grave. The cast of characters includes galaxy hunters and microwave eavesdroppers, gravity theorists and atom smashers, all of whom are on the trait of dark matter, dark energy, and the
growing inhabitants of the particle zoo. Scientists now know how the universe will end and are on the brink of understanding its beginning. Their findings will be among the greatest triumphs of science, towering above even the deciphering of the human genome.
