There is no more profound, enduring or fascinating question in all of science than that of how time, space, and matter began. Now John Barrow, who has been at the cutting edge of research in this area and has written extensively about it, guides us on a journey to the beginning of time, into a world of temperatures and densities so high that we cannot recreate them in a laboratory. With new insights, Barrow draws us into the latest speculative theories about the nature of time and the "inflationary universe," explains "wormholes," showing how they bear upon the fact of our own existence, and considers whether there was a "singularity" at the inception of the universe. Here is a treatment so up-to-date and intellectually rich, dealing with ideas and speculation at the farthest frontier of science, that neither novice nor expert will want to miss what Barrow has to say. The Origin of the Universe is "In the Beginning" for beginners -- the latest information from a first-rate scientist and science writer.

Questions about the physical world, the mind, and technology in conversations that reveal a rich seam of interacting ideas. Science today is more a process of collaboration than moments of individual “eurekas.” This book recreates that kind of synergy by offering a series of interconnected dialogues with leading scientists who are asked to reflect on key questions and concepts about the physical world, technology, and the mind. These thinkers offer both specific observations and broader comments about the intellectual traditions that inform these questions; doing so, they reveal a rich seam of interacting ideas. The persistent paradox of our era is that in a world of unprecedented access to information, many of the most important questions remain unsolved. These conversations (conducted by a veteran science writer, Adolfo Plasencia) reflect this, with scientists addressing such issues as intelligence, consciousness, global warming, energy, technology, matter, the possibility of another earth, changing the past, and even the philosophical curveball, “is the universe a hologram?” The dialogues discuss such fascinating aspects of the physical world as the function of the quantum bit, the primordial cosmology of the universe, and the wisdom of hewn stones. They offer optimistic but reasoned views of technology, considering convergence culture, algorithms, “Beauty ≠ Truth,” the hacker ethic, AI, and other topics. And they offer perspectives from a range of disciplines on intelligence, discussing subjects that include the neurophysiology of the brain, affective computing, collaborative innovation, and the wisdom of crowds. Conversations with Hal Abelson, Ricardo Baeza-Yates, John Perry Barlow, Javier Benedicto, José Bernabéu, Michail Bletsas, Jose M.

From the Big Bang to the Gaia Mission, this is a very personal history of the universe through the author's favourite 100 stars. Astronomer Florian Freistetter has chosen 100 stars that have almost nothing in common. Some are bright and famous, some shine so feebly you need a huge telescope. There are big stars, small stars, nearby stars and faraway stars. Some died a while ago, others have not even yet come into being. Collectively they tell the story of the whole world, according to Freistetter. There is Algol, for example, the Demon Star, whose strange behaviour has long caused people sleepless nights. And Gamma Draconis, from which we know that the earth rotates around its own axis. There is also the star sequence 61 Cygni, which revealed the size of the cosmos to us. Then there are certain stars used by astronomers to search for extra-terrestrial life, to explore interstellar space travel, or to explain why the dinosaurs became extinct. In 100 short, fascinating and entertaining chapters, Freistetter not only reveals the past and future of the cosmos, but also the story of the people who have tried to understand the world in which we live.

Have you seen someone from a movie that made you wonder if someone like that exists in real life? Like Superman, or Wonderwoman. Someone with extraordinary qualities that only lives by your imagination. I thought they are just like that, from my fantasy. Until... I came across Stephen Hawking. Stephen Hawking is a name that is impossible to ignore, at least if you’re a human from Earth. Although to be fair, I’m willing to bet that aliens also know a thing or two about him. He was called the modern day Einstein for a reason. If you don't know him, or have heard of him but didn't know how big of an impact he did on this planet, or you just want some inspiration when you are feeling down... then take a look at this book. Stephen Hawking, the Man Who Defied Everything includes: What Everyone Ought To Know About Stephen Hawking (How he was predicted to die by 21, and how he extended his life to 76)Stephen Hawking is a Robot, How He Can Talk Without Opening His MouthWhy A Brief History of Time Will Change the Way You Think: From the Big Bang to Black HolesThe Universe in a Nutshell Explained in an Easy Way, You Don't Have To Be a Scientist or Cosmologist to UnderstandInterpretation of The Theory of Everything: The Origin and Fate of the UniverseFall in Love with Physics and Science by his beliefsThe Dreams that Stuff is Made of: The Most Astounding Papers of Quantum Physics, and How They Shook the Scientific WorldThe Ice Bucket Challenge The Truth Is You Are Not The Only Person Concerned About ALS And much MUCH more! Are you ready to know about a real-life superhero who lived in our generation? You will be amazed at how he surpassed hindrances that are not imaginable. Much of the content of this book is being debated for his belief have a different approach. So if you are interested in Theoretical Physics or just want to be inspired by someone who defied all limits, Do not Wait Any Longer!

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered "What is the universe?" In this lively and engaging collection of interviews, astronomer Stephan Martin talks with some of today's most innovative and cutting-edge thinkers on the nature of the universe and our relationship to it. Scientists, mystics, indigenous elders, and cultural creatives all share their unique voices on the nature of reality, the interplay of science and religion, the future of humanity, and the role of each person in a mysterious and evolving universe. Filled with rich insight, dynamic discussion, and penetrating wisdom, Cosmic Conversations asks the fundamental questions about the universe many of us have wondered about, yet few have explored in-depth, questions such as: Do time, space, and matter really exist? Can the universe be inside us, outside us, or both? Is the universe alive, conscious, and intelligent? Where are we in the cosmic evolutionary picture? A compelling journey from the farthest reaches of outer space to the innermost realms of the human heart, Cosmic Conversations will change the way you look at the universe (and yourself) forever.
