Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Tells the story of the search that lead to Dr. Smoot's cosmological theory that after the Big Bang, wrinkles formed in space ultimately to become stars, galaxies, and even greater delicate structures. Smoot searched for his answers in the frozen wastes of Antarctica, on mountaintops, with experiments aboard high-altitude balloons, U-2 spy planes, and finally a space satellite. The engaging story is written for the layperson, with eight pages of color plates and many black and white photos.
