'Inspirational' Buzz Aldrin

When exactly did life begin? What really happened during the big bang - and before it? Is the universe expanding? Is dark matter real? Do we live in one of many worlds? What's more, how can we prove any of this?

This book is all about how we - any of us - can gain an understanding of the Universe in all its awe-inspiring glory. Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw take us on an epic journey of scientific exploration, revealing how the biggest questions - from the size of the earth to the distance to the stars - are answerable from our own back gardens.

You don't need a Large Hadron Collider or a Hubble Space Telescope to explore the cosmos. You just need this book.

Review:

There is still much to learn about our universe. Universal will help inspire those who share my fascination with our planets, the solar system and beyond. (Buzz Aldrin)

Cox and Forshaw stand together at the cutting edge of their discipline ... despite their elevated status, both men remain tiggerishly excitable about their subject ... they popularize without dumbing down (Financial Times)

A scientific match made in heaven (Observer)

They do a great job of bringing a difficult subject to life (The Times)
