Answers to science's most enduring questions from "Can I break the
light-speed barrier like on "Star Trek?"" and "Is there life on
other planets?" to "What is empty space made of?"
This is an indispensable guide to physics that offers readers an
overview of the most popular physics topics written in an
accessible, irreverent, and engaging manner while still maintaining
a tone of wry skepticism. Even the novice will be able to follow
along, as the topics are addressed using plain English and (almost)
no equations. Veterans of popular physics will also find their
nagging questions addressed, like whether the universe can expand
faster than light, and for that matter, what the universe is
expanding into anyway.Gives a one-stop tour of all the big
questions that capture the public imagination including string
theory, quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and the beginning of
timeExplains serious science in an entertaining, conversational,
and easy-to-understand wayIncludes dozens of delightfully
groan-worthy cartoons that explain everything from special
relativity to Dark Matter
Filled with fascinating information and insights, this book will
both deepen and transform your understanding of the universe."
