Description - Explaining the Universe by John M. Charap

In this fascinating book. John Charap offers a panoramic view of the physicist's world as the twenty-first century opens - a view that is entirely different from the one that greeted the twentieth century. We have learned that the universe is billions of galaxies larger than we imagined - and billions of years older. We know more about how it came to be and what it is. Because of physics, we live in a world of greater danger, more convenience, smaller particles, and bigger ideas. Charap introduces these ideas but spares us the math behind them. As he takes us from the ultraviolet catastrophe that undid the Newtonian world to tomorrow's Theory of Everything. Charap brings today's science down to Earth, where we can all enjoy it.
