One Universe: At Home in the Cosmos

One Universe: At Home in the Cosmos Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Glorious photographs - many seen for the first time in these pages - and original illustrations expand and enrich our understanding. Evocative and clearly written, "One Universe" explains complex ideas in ways that every reader can grasp and enjoy. This book captures the grandeur of the heavens while making us feel at home in the cosmos. Above all, it helps us realize that galaxies, stars, planets, and we ourselves all belong to one universe.

Book News Annotation:

Published in conjunction with the opening of the new Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History, this book explains the physics of the cosmos in terms of familiar principles at work here on earth (e.g., the force of gravity that lands a baseball in the bleachers also keeps the moon in orbit). Sections cover motion, matter, and energy and are beautifully illustrated with photos and diagrams. Concepts of cosmology are saved for the final chapter, which covers string theory, black holes, dark matter, gamma-ray bursts, cosmological inflation, the Big Bang, and the search for extraterrestrial life.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
