Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Where the science of black holes, gravitational waves, and time travel will likely lead us, as reported by spacetime's most important theoreticians and observers. Our Minds Tell US that some things in the universe must be true. The nw physics tells us that they are not, and in the process blurs the line between science and science fiction. Here are six accessibel essays by those who walk that line, moving ever further out in discovering the patterns of nature, aimed at readers who share their fascination with the deepest mysteries of the universe.

Book News Annotation:

Price (theoretical physics, U. of Utah) introduces five essays based on popular talks given on June 3, 2000 honoring California Institute of Technology physicist Kip Thorne. Novikov, Hawking, Thorne, Ferris, and Lightman speculate about time travel, trends in linking quantum theory with relativity, and popularizing science in fact and fiction. Includes explanatory figures, photos, and a glossary.
