9780061137877: You Are Here: A Portable History of the Universe

A thrilling biography of the universe, as seen through the lens of today’s most cutting-edge scientific thinking. Here’s the book that explains the universe.

You Are Here is an exhilarating journey that shows the cosmos as it has never been seen before. From the smallest parts of matter to the largest structures in the universe, Christopher Potter traces the life of the universe from theories of its conception to theories of its eventual fate. Along this heart-stopping voyage from quarks to galaxies, he writes entertainingly about the history and philosophy of science. With wisdom and wonder, Potter traverses the cosmos from its formation to its eventual end – while exploring everything in between.

Some questions You Are Here sets out to answer:
• What is this ‘everything’ that has evolved from nothing? And what do we mean by everything?
• What stuff is ‘nothing’ made out of?
• If the universe contains everything there is then what is it contained in?
• Where are we in the universe?
• Is there room for God in a material universe?
• How scared should we be?
• What fate awaits the universe?

Science actually has answers to these questions, and in You Are Here, Potter will explain them to you.
