9780020967705: The Moment of Creation: Big Bang Physics from Before the First Millisecond to the Present Universe

"Trefil surpasses almost all other scientists writing about science." — The New York Times
"Fascinating reading. A mind-stretching book." — John Barkham Reviews
One of the founders of modern quark theory traverses the eons to bring readers within the first millisecond of the Big Bang. Trefil employs minimal mathematics in this compelling and lucid narrative, which not only offers a remarkable view of the universe's beginnings, but also speculates about its end. Compelling and lucid, this reader-friendly narrative travels billions of years back in time to depict the events that culminated in the Big Bang: the colossal explosion that initiated the existence of the universe. James Trefil is one of the founders of modern quark theory, and he specializes in explaining complex scientific matters to nonspecialists. 1983 edition.
