CONSOLATIONS OF PHYSICS

TIM RADFORD    Book Number: 86860    Product format: Paperback

An inspiring reflection on space and matter sub-titled 'Why the Wonders of the Universe Can Make You Happy'. In an age of uncertainty and division, Tim Radford, Science Editor of the Guardian for 25 years, turns to the wonders of the Universe for comfort in his beautiful and moving book. From the launch of the Voyager spacecraft to the discovery of a planet composed entirely of diamond and graphite, from the Higgs Boson to the Big Bang, he will guide you from a tiny particle to the marvels of outer space and prove how understanding physics can make you happier. Be converted by this poetic paean to mankind's quest to make sense of the Universe. Discover gravitational waves with Dante's The Divine Comedy which inspired the laws of motion founded by Galileo 300 years later, and from dark energy to St. Augustine's City of God. Here are dreams and undertakings that underpin creation in a lyrical hymn to space exploration, knowledge and the enquiring mind. 182pp in paperback.
