The Universe in Bite-Sized Chunks

Released: 22 March 2018 (Michael O’Mara)

The whole cosmos in your hands, The Universe in Bite-sized Chunks is your one-stop guide to everything you ever wanted to know about space and our place in it.

Does dark matter keep you up at night? Do alien planets intrigue you, parallel universes confuse you, and black holes fill you with dread? If yes, then this book is for you – all these things, and more, are clearly explained in everyday language for the non-astronomer.

This fascinating book will take you on an astral adventure, beginning with humanity’s very first astronomical observations, and ending with the latest thinking on the most cutting-edge discoveries. Along the way, you’ll learn about the Big Bang and the ultimate fate of the universe, Galileo and Newton, gravitational waves and shooting stars, the Aurora Borealis and the Apollo missions, quasars and dark energy.

With so many intriguing but often mind-boggling concepts to grasp, Colin Stuart uses all his knowledge and expertise to engage the reader and make the subject accessible, providing the very best start to your cosmic voyage of discovery.
