‘Engaging, ambitious and creative’ Guardian

Where are we? Are we alone? Who are we? Why are we here? What is our future?

Human Universe tackles some of the greatest questions that humans have asked to try and understand the very nature of ourselves and the Universe in which we live.

Through the endless leaps of human minds, it explores the extraordinary depth of our knowledge today and where our curiosity may lead us in the future. With groundbreaking insight it reveals how time, physics and chemistry came together to create a creature that can wonder at its own existence, blessed with an unquenchable thirst to discover not just where it came from, but how it can think, where it is going and if it is alone.

Accompanies the acclaimed BBC TV series.

About the Author:

Professor Brian Cox, OBE is a particle physicist, a Royal Society research fellow, and a professor at the University of Manchester as well as researcher on one of the most ambitious experiments on Earth, the ATLAS experiment on the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. He is best known to the public as a science broadcaster and presenter of the popular BBC Wonders trilogy.

Andrew Cohen is Head of the BBC Science Unit and the Executive Producer of the BBC series Human Universe. He has been responsible for a wide range of science documentaries including Horizon, the Wonders trilogy and Stargazing Live. He is an honorary lecturer in Life Sciences at the University of Manchester and lives in London with his wife and three children.

Review:

Praise for Professor Brian Cox:

‘Cox’s romantic, lyrical approach to astrophysics all adds up to an experience that feels less like homework and more like having a story told to you. A really good story, too.’ Guardian

‘He bridges the gap between our childish sense of wonder and a rather more professional grasp of the scale of things.’ Independent

‘If you didn’t utter a wow watching the TV, you will while reading the book.’ The Times

‘In this book of the acclaimed BBC2 TV series, Professor Cox shows us the cosmos as we have never seen it before – a place full of the most bizarre and powerful natural phenomena.’ Sunday Express

‘Will entertain and delight ... what a priceless gift that would be.’ Independent on Sunday

Descripción William Collins. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Estado de conservación: New. Who are we? Why are we here? Are we alone? What is our future? Based on the hugely popular five-part BBC television series of the same name, this beautifully illustrated companion volume tackles some of humanity's greatest questions about the true nature of ourselves and the universe in which we live. Particle physicist Brian Cox takes a refreshingly conversational approach as he explores the extraordinary depth of our knowledge today, and where our curiosity may lead us in the future. Amid dramatic color photos and drawings of everything from striated, gem-like fossil rocks to the finds of some of our long-range space probes, from ancient astronomical temples to explorers on the moon, Professor Cox explains how time, physics, and chemistry came together to create a creature that can wonder at its own existence. 288.
