Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs: The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe [9780099593560]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

66 million years ago, a ten-mile-wide object from outer space hurtled into the Earth at incredible speed. The impact annihilated the dinosaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet. But what if this catastrophe was the sign of something greater: an opening vista onto the interconnectedness of the universe itself?

This is the story of the astounding forces that underpin our existence; a horizon-expanding tour of the cosmos that unifies what we know about the universe with new thinking. From the far-flung reaches of space, the make-up of the universe and our solar system's place within it, to the mysterious and elusive stuff of dark matter and how it affects life here on Earth.

'Weird and wonderful' - Sunday Times

'A beautiful account of how life on Earth is intimately connected to the cosmos' - Daily Telegraph

'A bold intellectual synthesis...blending cosmology, astronomy, particle physics and the history of life on Earth to suggest the existence of an entirely new force of nature. This book ventures into the unkown, but that's where great physicists like to be' - Professor Brian Cox

'A masterpiece of science writing' - Kip Thorne, Theoretical Physicist

'Your inner five-year-old and inner geek are going to be thrilled' - Tara Shears, Mail on Sunday
