What is Life? Where did it come from? Why does it end?

In this beautiful companion book to the Science series Wonders of Life, professor Brian Cox takes us on an incredible journey to discover how a few fundamental laws gave birth to the most complex, diverse, and unique force in the universe—life itself.

Earth is home to an estimated one hundred million species—yet each one is governed by the same laws. Light, gravity, time, matter, and energy are the building blocks of everything, from the smallest microbe to the biggest galaxy. What is true for a bacterium is true for a blue whale. This is the story of the amazing diversity and adaptability of life, told through the fundamental laws that govern it. Through his voyage of discovery, Brian explains how the astonishing inventiveness of nature came about and explores the milestones in the epic journey from the origin of life to modern civilization.

From the vast networks of subterranean fresh-water caverns of the Yucatan peninsula to the unique and precious island of Madagascar, Brian brings readers on a thrilling adventure to the earth's most remote locations, where the wonders of life are on spectacular display. Along the way, the biggest scientific questions are answered: What is life? Where did it come from? Why does it end?

Relying on the latest advances in science as well as the cutting-edge graphics used in the visually stunning bestsellers Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of the Universe, Brian uncovers the secrets of life in revolutionary detail.

Descripción Collins. 1 Cloth(s), 2013. hard. Estado de conservación: New. What is life? Where did it come from? Why does it end? Everything in the universe, from the smallest microbe to the largest cluster of galaxies, is constructed from the same fundamental building blocks and is subject to the same laws of nature; what is true for a bacterium is true for a blue whale, notes particle physicist Brian Cox. In this beautifully illustrated companion volume to the BBC television series of the same name, illustrated with spectacular color photos and drawings—many filling one or two pages—Cox explores the astonishing inventiveness of nature and various evolutionary milestones since the first spark of life in a refreshingly conversational approach. He takes us from the subterranean networks of freshwater caverns on the Yucatan peninsula to the unique life forms that have evolved on the island of Madagascar, along the way befriending such enchanting creatures as the gigantic, highly inquisitive robber crabs of Christmas Island and the octopus, whose eyes are as sophisticated as our own but reveal a different evolutionary approach. 288.
