How the Universe Got Its Spots: Diary of a Finite Time in a Finite Space
Janna Levin (au)
Is the universe infinite, or is it just really big? Does nature abhor infinity? In startling & beautiful prose, astrophysicist Levinís diary of unsent letters to her mother describes what we know about the shape & extent of the universe, about its beginning & its end. She grants the uninitiated access to the astounding findings of contemporary theoretical physics & makes tangible the contours of space & time. Levin tells her personal story as a scientist isolated by her growing knowledge. This book is her effort to reach across the distance of that knowledge & share what she knows. Highly personal & original, this physicistís diary is a breathtaking contemplation of our deep connection with the universe & our aspirations to comprehend it. B&W illustrations.
