An introduction to space and our place in it – what is out there, where we fit in, and how we got here – from a distinguished cosmologist.
What happened in the first moments after the Big Bang? What are the mysterious ‘dark’ parts of the Universe? Is space is infinite? Is there is life elsewhere? And, what happens in those parts of space where conditions are so intense that our laws of physics break down? In this accessible book, practicing cosmologist and Professor of Astrophysics Jo Dunkley guides us through the history of our Universe as we know it, taking us to the heart of these many unsolved questions.
