9780233004808: Bang!: The Complete History of the Universe

With one big bang, the universe exploded into being 13.7 million years ago. This is the story of how everything came about, from the moment when time and space came into existence, to the formation of the first stars, galaxies, and planets, to the evolution of human beings able to contemplate our own origins and ultimate destiny—and on to the infinite future, after the Red Giant Sun consumes Earth. Bang! explains it all in clear, straightforward terms, chronologically, without any mathematics, and including the most up-to-date discoveries.
New in paperback.

About the Author:

Although best known to the world as the lead guitarist of supergroup Queen, Brian May has a PhD in astrophysics. Here, he uses his remarkable communication skills to share his enthusiasm for astronomy with the world.

Sir Patrick Moore is the world’s best-loved astronomer, author of more than 100 books, and presenter of the world’s longest- running TV program, BBC’s The Sky at Night. Patrick is also a renowned musician, with a multitude of compositions to his name, including a march especially commissioned from him by the Royal Marines!

Chris Lintott is best known as the copresenter, with Patrick, of The Sky at Night. He took his first degree in Physics at Cambridge, then his PhD in Astrophysics at University College London, and is now doing further research at Oxford.
 

Review:

"Highly recommended for community library astrology collections and for anyone who wants a unbiased look at the universe itself."

(Midwest Book Review)

"The story is told in clear, straightforward terms, in the strict order in which the events happened, and uses no mathematics."

(Steve Goddard History Wire - Where the Past Comes Alive)

"There's at least one rock star who knows a thing or two about real stars."

(Jeff Foust Space Review)

"The scope of the book is ambitious; its hard to cram in antimatter and inflation in one chapter and then skip to planetary science and biology in the next. Still, the authors do a wonderful job tackling a broad array of cosmic subjects. This is just the kind of book that would have fired up my imagination as a kid!... In the end, Bang! is an excellent illustrated compendium for what are perhaps weightier and less accessible tomes."

(AstroGuyz.com)

"Stunningly illustrated... breathtaking views of galaxies."

(Journal for the History of Astronomy)

"It basically takes the reader on a tour of the entire universe, and tells you everything you wants to know... It's beautifully described, accurate and they feature fantastic photography. If you like astronomy and those Hubble pictures on the Internet, don't know much but would love to learn more, this would be a great book for you."

(Philip Plait FiveBooks)

Descripción Carlton Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Bang! Space, time, matter.the Universe was born 13.7 billion years ago. Infinitely small at first, it expanded more rapidly than anyone can contemplate. Brian May, Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott explain how all this came about, from the moment when time and space came into existence, to the formation of the first stars, galaxies and planets, and to the evolution of human beings able to contemplate our own origins and ultimate destiny. Then on towards that destiny in the infinite future, long after the Earth has been consumed by the Red Giant Sun. The story is told in clear, straight forward terms, in the strict order in which the events happened, and uses no mathematics. Bang! is an amazing story and this newly revised text brings it Bang! up to date. Is it fiction? The authors hope not, since it is based upon lifetimes work by great scientists such as Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking and hundreds of other brilliant minds. Enjoy, and let your imagination run riot. Nº de ref. de la librería AA89780233004808
