9780131451339: Our Living Multiverse: A Book of Genesis in 0+7 Chapters

Imagine life as we know it exists on a tiny speck of dust floating through nearly empty space in a universe that is but a tiny island in a vast multiverse. Welcome home. "Simply the best cosmology book to come along in a long, long time. Adams addresses the fundamental question of why we are here. It is the first popular cosmology book I will have been willing to recommend in more than five years. Wonderful." -Adrian L. Melott,Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Kansas "In this beautifully written book, Fred Adams does a terrific job of describing our current understanding of what's been going on in the last 14 billion years, as elaborate galaxies, stars, planets, and people have emerged from a smooth and simple Big Bang. This book is original, delightful, and full of ideas." -Robert P. Kirschner,Harvard University, author of The Extravagant Universe "This finely illustrated book describes, clearly and accessibly, our new insights into the grand scheme of cosmic evolution." -Martin Rees,Cambridge University, author of Just Six Numbers and Our Cosmic Habitat "With so much talk about the frontier of biology these days, I welcome the occasional reminder that the laws of physics control the formation and evolution of life. In Our Living Multiverse, Fred Adams deftly traces how these laws have shaped the cosmos, from the Big Bang to the present, and how they continue to guide our search for life in the universe." -Neil deGrasse Tyson,Hayden Planetarium, American Museum of Natural History, New York
