Science Bundle Offer A Life in Science Brief Answers to the Big Questions The Grand Design
A Life in Science- To students of physics all over the world, Richard Feynman was living proof that to lead a life in science one does not need ice for blood and the mind of a Cray computer. In this unique biography, astrophysicist John Gribbon and his wife, Mary, pay tribute to this enormously human scientist.
Brief Answers to the Big Questions- Stephen Hawking was the most renowned scientist since Einstein, known both for his groundbreaking work in physics and cosmology and for his mischievous sense of humor. He educated millions of readers about the origins of the universe and the nature of black holes, and inspired millions more by defying a terrifying early prognosis of ALS, which originally gave him only two years to live. In later life he could communicate only by using a few facial muscles, but he continued to advance his field and serve as a revered voice on social and humanitarian issues.
The Grand Design- According to quantum theory, the cosmos does not have just a single existence or history. The authors explain that we ourselves are the product of quantum fluctuations in the early universe, and show how quantum theory predicts the “multiverse”—the idea that ours is just one of many universes that appeared spontaneously out of nothing, each with different laws of nature. They conclude with a riveting assessment of M-theory, an explanation of the laws governing our universe that is currently the only viable candidate for a “theory of everything”: the unified theory that Einstein was looking for, which, if confirmed, would represent the ultimate triumph of human reason.
