概要:
Join Chris Kitchin on this tour through the Universe from the Big Bang onwards. In a series of linked essays, the author explores the limits of knowledge where scientific fact overtakes & merges with the wilder speculations of science fiction. The beginnings of galaxies, stars, planets & even life itself are related back to the ravelled turmoil of the first few seconds & years of life in the cosmos. The journey continues past the ultimate fate of the Solar System to probe the nature of supernovae. The future of galaxies, clusters of galaxies, super-clusters of clusters of galaxies & so on leads towards the finale, where we encounter some of the more bizarre musings of physicists & astronomers, suggesting possible destinies for the universe stretching billions of times its present age into the future. Of interest to general science readers, astronomers, & astrophysicists at all levels. 続きを見る
