Summary

Drawing on the current cross-pollination among geology, biology, astrophysics, and cosmology, Origins explains the soul-stirring leaps in our understanding of the universe while capturing the importance of such extraordinary events as the first image of a galaxy being born and the exploration of Martian frontiers by Spirit Rover. Distilling complex science into clear and lively prose, coauthors Neil deGrasse Tyson and Donald Goldsmith conduct a galvanizing tour of the cosmos that reveals what the universe has been up to while turning part of itself into us.
