Autorentext
Lawrence M. Krauss, Ph.D., is author of the international bestseller, A UNIVERSE FROM NOTHING, as well as THE PHYSICS OF STAR TREK, Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Physics Dept, Co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative, and Inaugural Director of the Origins Initiative at Arizona State University. He is an internationally known theoretical physicist with wide research interests, including the interface between elementary particle physics and cosmology, where his studies include the early universe, the nature of dark matter, general relativity and neutrino astrophysics. He has long been involved in issues of science and society and has helped spearhead national efforts to educate the public about science, ensure sound public policy, and defend science against attacks at a variety of levels, including a national effort to defend the teaching of evolution in the public schools. Krauss and Richard Dawkins starred in a film documentary called The Unbelievers, which follows them as they discuss science and reason.

Klappentext

Internationally renowned, award-winning theoretical physicist, author of A Universe from Nothing, and passionate advocate for reason, Lawrence Krauss tells the dramatic story of the discovery of the hidden world of reality a grand poetic vision of nature and how we find our place within it. In the beginning there was light. But more than this, there was gravity. After that, all hell broke loose.



Zusammenfassung
'A great educator as well as a great physicist' Richard Dawkins

In the beginning there was light
but more than this, there was gravity.
After that, all hell broke loose...


This is how the story of the greatest intellectual adventure in history should be introduced - how humanity reached its current understanding of the universe, one that is far removed from the realm of everyday experience. Krauss connects the world we know with the invisible world all around us, which is removed from intuition and direct sensation. He explains our current understanding of nature and the struggle to construct the greatest theoretical edifice ever assembled, the Standard Model of Particle Physics -- and then to understand its implications for our existence.
  Writing in the critically acclaimed style of A Universe from Nothing, Krauss celebrates the beauty and wonders of the natural world and details our place within it and how this shapes our understanding of it. Krauss makes this story accessible through profiles of the scientists responsible for these advances, and clear explanations of their discoveries. Krauss takes us on a tour of science and the brilliant personalities who shaped it, often against political and religious indoctrination, enduring persecution and ostracism. Krauss creates a captivating blend of research and narrative to invite us into the lives and minds of these figures,creating a landmark work of scientific history.
