Origins

Fourteen Billion Years of Cosmic Evolution

«This is the book for anyone who wants to see how much we know about our surroundings and how we got here. But it is even more worthwhile for its sense of adventure and for showing just what science-imagination constrained by evidence-can tell us." -- Martin Ince - Times Higher Education "Neil deGrasse Tyson and Donald Goldsmith dip into astronomy, physics, geology, biology and chemistry with a racy and non-mathematical style. They encourage us to search for answers that could overturn much of what we think we already know. The task is daunting, but the excitement glows from every page." -- David Hughes - New Scientist»

Our true origins are not just human, or even terrestrial, but in fact cosmic. Drawing on recent scientific breakthroughs and the current cross-pollination among geology, biology, astrophysics, and cosmology Origins explains the soul-stirring leaps in our understanding of the cosmos. Les mer
