Scientific history…

A fascinating, yet dense, look at the history of scientific discovery and the cosmos, from Plato’s cave and Newton to the discovery of Higgs boson and more.

Описание

Internationally renowned, award-winning theoretical physicist, New York Times bestselling author of A Universe from Nothing, and passionate advocate for reason, Lawrence Krauss tells the dramatic story of the discovery of the hidden world of reality-a grand poetic vision of nature-and how we find our place within it.

In the beginning there was light.
But more than this, there was gravity.
After that, all hell broke loose…

In A Universe from Nothing, Krauss revealed how our entire universe could arise from nothing. Now, he reveals what that something-reality-is. And, reality is not what we think or sense-it's weird, wild, and counterintuitive; it's hidden beneath everyday experience; and its inner workings seem even stranger than the idea that something can come from nothing.

In a landmark, unprecedented work of scientific history, Krauss leads us to the furthest reaches of space and time, to scales so small they are invisible to microscopes, to the birth and rebirth of light, and into the natural forces that govern our existence. His unique blend of rigorous research and engaging storytelling invites us into the lives and minds of the remarkable, creative scientists who have helped to unravel the unexpected fabric of reality-with reason rather than superstition and dogma. Krauss has himself been an active participant in this effort, and he knows many of them well. The Greatest Story challenges us to re-envision ourselves and our place within the universe, as it appears that "God" does play dice with the universe. In the incisive style of his scintillating essays for The New Yorker, Krauss celebrates the greatest intellectual adventure ever undertaken-to understand why we are here in a universe where fact is stranger than fiction.

    After reading this book, I feel smarter but also still incredibly stupid. I am fascinated by the study of physics and by the amazing discoveries still being made in the field, but, no matter how much I read, I still feel like I just don't really understand physics. And that's okay. I'll just keep reading, as long as patient (and passionate) scientists like Krauss continue to write books that attempt to explain the field to laypersons like myself.

    Neat explanation to understand the causes of all the great discoveries.The reference image PDF which was supposed to be included in this audio book is missing. It would have been easier to relate topics with those images.

    The book provides a direct narrative history from Plato's Myth of the Cave in his Republic, to the confirmation of the existence of the Higgs particle/field with analogies that allow non-scientist readers/listeners to understand fundamental concepts. Plato's Cave itself is the first analogy for our state of understanding of physics and incorporating the crucial role that exploration of the nature of light played in the evolution of physics from Galileo to finding evidence of gravitational waves just as the book was being finished in 2017. Highly recommended.

    Following up on his previous book, A Universe from Nothing, Dr. Krauss walks us through why (meaning "how") we attained our current level of understanding of the natural world and the cosmos. Beginning with the properties and laws governing light and motion, Krauss then takes several chapters to delve into an overview of theoretical physics, covering electromagnetism, particle physics, quantum mechanics, and the purpose, development, and construction of such devices as the Large Hadron Collider and LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory). Through it all, Krauss shows diligence in crediting many of his Nobel-prize winning predecessors and mentors who advanced our collective knowledge of the universe, sometimes offering entertaining anecdotes into their personalities and, in a few cases, his own personal encounters with them as a student or colleague. Despite the book's bold title, Krauss is not as openly scornful of theology this time around and in fact, opens each chapter with a quote from the Bible apropos of the topic.

    Absolutely amazing! So glad Lawrence voiced the audiobook as well, he did a great job of staying in 'the pocket', or 'flow' if ya know what I mean..

    This is one of those that you'll want to listen to a couple times. I listen to LOTS of audiobooks and this is definitely going to be one I recommend!

    good physics book but I feel the author failed his thesis to replace the Christian's Gospels with his Gospel. He treats the Bible like a science book but it is a theology book. I feel his attack on the Christian faith was a marking ploy.
