An awe-inspiring, unforgettable journey of scientific exploration from Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw, the international bestselling authors of Why Does E=MC2? and The Quantum Universe, with 55 black-&-white and 45 full-color pages featuring photographs, diagrams, maps, tables, and graphs We dare to imagine a time before the Big Bang, when the entire universe was compressed into a space smaller than an atom. And now, as Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw show, we can do more than imagine: we can understand. Universal takes us on an epic journey of scientific exploration. It reveals how we can all come to grips with some of the most fundamental questions about our Earth, Sun, and solar system--and the star-filled galaxies beyond. How big is our solar system? How quickly is space expanding? How big is the universe? What is it made of? Some of these questions can be answered on the basis of observations you can make in your own backyard. Other answers draw on the astonishing information now being gathered by teams of astronomers operating at the frontiers of the known universe. At the heart of all this lies the scientific method. Science reveals a deeper beauty and connects us to each other, to our world, and to our universe. Science reaches out into the unknown. As Universal demonstrates, if we dare to imagine, we can do the same.

In Universal, bestselling physicists Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw (Why Does E=mc2?) take us on an inspirational journey of scientific exploration. They show that, by asking questions about the world around us, anyone can think like a physicist and grasp the breath-taking grandeur of the cosmos. Universal guides you to make your own measurements between the Earth and neighboring planets by using the parallax method; follow in the footsteps of cosmologist Edwin Hubble to discover that the universe is expanding; and work out the Earth's radius by applying Pythagoras's theorem to simple observations you can make on a beach. With full explanations, diagrams, and astonishing photographs, Cox and Forshaw reveal how we can all understand some of the most fundamental questions about our Earth, Sun, solar system, and the galaxies beyond. At the heart of all these questions—from the earliest attempts to quantify gravity to our efforts to understand what really happened at the birth of our universe—is the scientific process that includes us all. The ultimate guide to our cosmos, Universal presents a world of simple questions with sublime answers.
