  • The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey Through Space, Time, and Beyond By Christophe Galfard If Ms Frizzle were a physics student of Stephen Hawking, she might have written THE UNIVERSE IN YOUR HAND, a wild tour through the reaches of time and space, from the interior of a proton to the Big Bang to the rough suburbs of a black hole It s friendly, excitable, erudite, and cosmic Jordan Ellenberg, New York Times besteselling author of How Not To Be WrongQuantum If Ms Frizzle were a physics student of Stephen Hawking, she might have written THE UNIVERSE IN YOUR HAND, a wild tour through the reaches of time and space, from the interior of a proton to the Big Bang to the rough suburbs of a black hole It s friendly, excitable, erudite, and cosmic Jordan Ellenberg, New York Times besteselling author of How Not To Be WrongQuantum physics, black holes, string theory, the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, parallel universes even if we are interested in these fundamental concepts of our world, their language is the language of math Which means that despite our best intentions of finally grasping, say, Einstein s Theory of General Relativity, most of us are quickly brought up short by a snarl of nasty equations or an incomprehensible graph.Christophe Galfard s mission in life is to spread modern scientific ideas to the general public in entertaining ways Using his considerable skills as a brilliant theoretical physicist and successful young adult author, The Universe in Your Hand employs the immediacy of simple, direct language to show us, not explain to us, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe To understand what happens to a dying star, we are asked to picture ourselves floating in space in front of it To get acquainted with the quantum world, we are shrunk to the size of an atom and then taken on a journey Employing everyday similes and metaphors, addressing the reader directly, and writing stories rather than equations renders these astoundingly complex ideas in an immediate and visceral way.Utterly captivating and entirely unique, The Universe in Your Hand will find its place among other classics in the field.

    Wow this book kicked ass It was so good, it is a perfect marriage between perfect narrative and interesting context while at the same time not letting anything out If you are interested in physics, black holes, string theory and quantum science but feel intimidated to read about it, make this your introductory book because it will explain everything in layman terms and you ll have fun learning all the components that make up our known universe while getting a glimpse at our future in science I c [...]

    This book has overwhelmed me so much Such a brilliant description of modern astrophysics in a relatively accessible way I can only say that I loved it and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in astronomy and astrophysics 5 5.

    One of my alltime favourite books on physics for the general reader Written by Christophe Galfard, who was at one time Stephen Hawking s student, it covers in wonderfully accessible prose all the important events, theories, personalities and gives us a glimpse into what is in store for the future stuff like Relativity, Quantum mechanics, Black Holes, Origin of the Universe, the birth and death of stars, the Big Bang Theory etc Galfard s wonderful sense of humour is infectious I couldn t stop lau [...]

    Was f r ein Buch Obwohl ich eine absolute Astrophysik Laiin bin, verstand ich doch ein paar Abschnitte Vieles ist zwar f r mich immer noch absolut unvorstellbar, aber das liegt wohl mehr an mir als am Autor Trotzdem war es faszinierend durch das Universum zu reisen Ich werde es wohl noch kaufen, damit ich immer wieder mal ein Kapitel nachlesen kann Empfehlenswert

    If you re like me and you are really fascinated by the universe and how it was created The Big Bang Theory , then you re going to want to pick this one up I was browsing in Waterstones, like I usually do checking out the new releases when I saw this book, picked it up and thought, I need to read this I ve had an interest in astronomy ever since I studied a small module of it in Science, but my knowledge of it has not progressed since then, so this book was the perfect opportunity for me to find [...]

    Comenzamos a comprender que no deb amos buscar el pasado s lo bajo nuestros pies, sino tambi n en las estrellas.

    I read this book without any expectations and quickly I realized that this, was an amazing book with an amazing adventure The book mixes a novelistic structure with a learning style and I loved this combination I think that the idea of explaining hard and abstract concepts from physics and astronomy using a narrative thread that connects and guides the reader in a kind of journey is perfect I highly recommend this book to all astronomy and physics fans who want to enjoy a space adventure.Spanish [...]

    Galfard work with St pane Hawking Another astrophysician book What s news I was not very interested in reading this book A friend offered it to me in french edition and I must recognize I had pleasure to read it.It is well written and in fact exciting.R mi Brague remarked that cosmos etymologically came from beauty, women and jewel In latin, mundus design cosmos and also female jewelry Cosmos, beauty, women I like this association.

    Me cost un poco meterme en el juego mental que propone el libro, pero una vez dentro lo he disfrutado de lo lindo Es un texto asequible que no deja nada fuera del ndice, desde Newton a la teor a de cuerdas Una buena opci n para aquellos que quieran una visi n actualizada y divulgativa de las ltimas teor as astron micas.

    My husband enjoys science books and when starts talking about all this intelligent stuff my brain is asleep Finally a book that makes learning about scientific topics like the universe and time easier to understand and fun at the same time Even better it s actually for adults Now I am flaunting my new knowledge at home and once or twice I even got to tell him something he hasn t read about yet I love this book and hopefully my excited rambling is a good enough review to make you read this awesom [...]

    Mind bending, fascinating, inspiring, and awe striking I ll be thinking about what I ve read for weeks What an amazing universe we live in, and how vastly unknown it is With new discoveries looming just over the horizon, I can t wait or imagine the things we ll come to understand for understanding our universe ultimately means understanding ourselves and how we came to be A fantastic read Simply fantastic.

    I don t even know how to express my love for this book It explains complex scientific concepts in accessible, easy to understand terms, by inviting the reader on a narrative journey where they are the protagonist, discovering the wonders of the universe firsthand.For me, this book awoke a somewhat dormant love for science that I ve had since I was a kid I feel like my eyes have been opened to a whole new world, and I am in love.I went from being almost 100% ignorant about physics and space, to b [...]

    This is seriously in the running for best non fiction book I ve ever read Anyone who knows me knows I love space I love looking at stars, planets, nebluae, galaxies and everything else out there The problem, up until this point, has been that I ve never properly understood what any of it is This book changed all that.It explains everything so clearly It assumes no knowledge of science at all thank goodness and starts completely from scratch Over 400 pages you then cover general relativity, quant [...]

    I started this book with no high expectations And the thought experiment Galfard uses at the beginning felt almost fatuous But with that feeling, I kept breezing through the book All chapters are being grouped under 7 overarching parts, and they are tied and flow organically There is a summary whenever lots of ground is covered A lot of concepts, which are taken for granted, are being elucidated fantastically I was irked when he changed the thought experiment setting from just mind to corporeal [...]

    This was the book that got me into space It s so beautifully written in a way that is perfectly understandable for someone with minimal knowledge of physics and space in general It s not a book that just spews out facts but it gives you brilliant imagery so you can very much feel like you actually are on a journey through the cosmos and beyond Because of this book, I really have developed an even bigger fascination for space and the universe I have so much love for this book and I think it s goi [...]

    I won t lie, from the outset of this book I was a little bit worried for two reasons first, because I ve reached a point where, because I ve read so many popsci books, they all start to sound the same, and therefore just become white noise Background radiation, if you will Now, that s obviously not the fault of the book, strictly speaking, but I was hoping that since it was a newer publication, it might have recent information, especially since the discovery of the Higgs boson and the gravitati [...]

    Agujeros negros, antimateria, campos cu nticos, energ a oscura, multiverso, universos paralelos, tiempo de Planck, plasma, campo de Higgs Galfard es disc pulo de Hawking y eso se nota en esta entretenida obra de divulgaci n imprescindible para todos aquellos que un buen o mal d a nos despegamos de la ciencia y ca mos en el m s profundo y vergonzante vac o c smico de ignorancia.

    Comme le titre cul cul et racoleur semble l annoncer, nous avons l un chef d uvre de vulgarisation M me les plus nuls et les plus ignares en sciences ne pourront que reconna tre l accessibilit des propos de l auteur Celui ci ne cache pas son ambition de nous transmettre toutes les connaissances actuelles sur l Univers, du tr s grand au tr s petit, et il y r ussit La suite sur mon blog, merci

    3.5This was really good, I enjoyed it, but I don t think I ll ever be able to be a science minded person, least of all a theoretical physicist.

    Galfard s stated aim is not to leave anyone behind and indeed, I could keep up until the start of the last section First book of heavy cosmology that could take me that far Call it Brief History of Time for Normal People.
