Summary

Through the arc of a single oxygen atom's voyage through eternity, the story of life and the universe is told by Lawrence Krauss.
Hailed by many as the heir to Carl Sagan, the author of the runaway bestseller The Physics of Star Trek tackles here his most ambitious challenge to date. From the earliest moments of the Big Bang to the emergence of life on Earth, from a riveting description of the atom's beginnings inside an exploding star to a thought-provoking discussion of the possible end of life in the universe, Krauss infuses this cosmic tale with humor, insight, and accessibility. Beginning his story below the Earth's crust, deep in an underground water chamber, Krauss moves back in time before the water existed and ends long after the planet on which the water is found is no more.
