Description

An eye-opening celebration of the marvels of space, time, the cosmos, and more How to Love the Universe is a new kind of science writing by an author truly enamored of the world around him. In ten short chapters of lyrical prose-each one an ode to a breathtaking realm of discovery-Stefan Klein uses everyday objects and events as a springboard to meditate on the beauty of the underlying science. Klein sees in a single rose the sublime interdependence of all life; a day of stormy weather points to the world's unpredictability; a marble conjures the birth of the cosmos. As he contemplates the deepest mysteries-the nature of reality, dark matter, humanity's place among the galaxies, and more-Klein encourages us to fall in love with the universe the way scientists do: with a grasp of the key ideas and theories of twenty-first-century physics that bring to life the wonders of, really, everything. You won't look at a rose-or at our world-the same way again.
