Parallel Worlds: A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos

By Michio Kaku

During this exciting trip into the mysteries of our cosmos, bestselling writer Michio Kaku takes us on a dizzying trip to discover black holes and time machines, multidimensional area and, so much tantalizing of all, the chance that parallel universes may well lay along our personal. Kaku skillfully publications us throughout the most modern ideas in string concept and its most modern new release, M-theory, which posits that our universe might be only one in an never-ending multiverse, a novel bubble floating in a sea of countless bubble universes. If M-theory is confirmed right, we may well ultimately locate resolution to the query, “What occurred earlier than the large bang?” this is often a thrilling and unforgettable creation into the hot state of the art theories of physics and cosmology from one of many pre-eminent voices within the box.

The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos

By Brian Greene

The bestselling writer of The stylish Universe and The cloth of the Cosmos tackles maybe the main mind-bending query in sleek physics and cosmology: Is our universe the single universe?

There used to be a time whilst "universe" intended all there's. every little thing. but, a couple of theories are converging at the hazard that our universe should be yet one amongst many parallel universes populating an unlimited multiverse. the following, Briane Greene, considered one of our most advantageous physicists and technological know-how writers, takes us on a wide ranging trip to a multiverse comprising an unending sequence of massive bangs, a multiverse with duplicates of each certainly one of us, a multiverse populated by way of sizeable sheets of spacetime, a multiverse within which all we think of genuine are holographic illusions, or even a multiverse made only of math--and unearths the truth hidden inside each.

Using his trademark wit and precision, Greene provides an exhilarating survey of state-of-the-art physics and confronts the inevitable query: How can primary technology development if nice swaths of truth lie past our achieve? The Hidden Reality is a notable event via an international extra giant and weird than something shall we have imagined.

Warum ist E = mc²?: Einsteins berühmte Formel verständlich erklärt

By Brian Cox, Jeff Forshaw

E = mc² ist die berühmteste Formel der Welt. Mit ihr brachte Einstein es auf den Punkt: Energie und Masse sind zwei Seiten derselben Medaille und die Lichtgeschwindigkeit c ist ihr Wechselkurs. Doch warum besteht dieses so einfache Verhältnis? Wie ist Albert Einstein zu diesem Schluss gekommen? Und welche Folgen für das Verständnis des Universums ergeben sich daraus? Brian Cox, Professor für Physik und in England durch seine Sendungen auf BBC sehr bekannt, hat sich zusammen mit seinem Kollegen Jeff Forshaw, Professor für theoretische Physik, die scheinbar einfache Einstein-Gleichung vorgenommen, um sie mit viel Energie ausführlich und verständlich zu erklären.

To Explain the World: The Discovery of Modern Science

A masterful remark at the background of technology from the Greeks to trendy instances, by way of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg—a thought-provoking and critical ebook by means of probably the most extraordinary scientists and intellectuals of our time.

In this wealthy, irreverent, and compelling heritage, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg takes us throughout centuries from old Miletus to medieval Baghdad and Oxford, from Plato’s Academy and the Museum of Alexandria to the cathedral university of Chartres and the Royal Society of London. He indicates that the scientists of old and medieval instances not just didn't comprehend what we comprehend concerning the world—they didn't comprehend what there's to appreciate, or how you can know it. but over the centuries, in the course of the fight to resolve such mysteries because the curious backward stream of the planets and the increase and fall of the tides, the fashionable self-discipline of technology finally emerged. alongside the way in which, Weinberg examines ancient clashes and collaborations among technological know-how and the competing spheres of faith, expertise, poetry, arithmetic, and philosophy.

An illuminating exploration of how we ponder and learn the area round us, To clarify the World is a sweeping, bold account of ways tough it was once to find the ambitions and strategies of contemporary technology, and the effect of this discovery on human wisdom and development.
