Big Bang : Origin of the Universe - 04 edition

Big Bang : Origin of the Universe (ISBN10: 0007162200; ISBN13: 9780007162208)

ISBN10: 0007162200

This highly readable and entertaining book tells the story of the many brilliant, often eccentric scientists who fought against ...show morethe establishment idea of an eternal and unchanging cosmos. From such early Greek cosmologists as Anaximander to recent satellite measurements taken deep in space, Big Bang is a narrative full of anecdotes and personal histories. With characteristic clarity, Simon Singh tells the centuries-long story of mankind's attempt to understand how the universe came to be, a story which itself begins some 14 billion years ago (give or take a billion years). Simon Singh shows us that it is within the capability of all of us -- in his expert hands -- to understand the Big Bang: the fundamental theory in all of science, and a high point -- perhaps the high point -- of human achievement. ...show less
