Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An adventure into the heart of Nothing by bestselling author K. C. Cole.

Once again, acclaimed science writer K. C. Cole brings the arcane and acad-

emic down to the level of armchair scientists in The Hole in the Universe,

an entertaining and edifying search for nothing at all. Open the newspaper

on any given day and you will read of a newly discovered planet, star, and

so on. Yet scientists and mathematicians have spent generations searching

the far reaches of the universe for that one elusive state-nothingness.

Although this may sound like a simple task, every time the absolute void

appears within reach, something new is discovered in its place: a black hole,

an undulating string, an additional dimension of space or time-even another universe. A fascinating and literary tour de force, The Hole in the Universe is a virtual romp into the unknown that you never knew wasn't there.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 258-266) and index.
