Make Your Own List. It's alive. He looks at how we can date the age of the universe, the danger of solar flares, and why Pluto is no longer classed as a planet. Philip Plait is an astronomer. On his blog badastronomy.
When she learned about a conference dedicated to their hero, the legendary physicist John Wheeler, twenty-one-year-old Gefter realized that journalists would have unlimited access to the conference—and might even be able to talk to the great man himself. Not a journalist? Not a problem. Faking her credentials, Gefter snuck herself and her father into the symposium—and unwittingly embarked on a prestigious and far-ranging career that would bring her into contact with the biggest names and ideas in the field. We know that visible matter only accounts for about four percent of our universe; the thing is, we have absolutely no idea what makes up the rest. As much about the behind-the-scenes maneuvering betrayals! Big Bang: The Origin of the Universe , by Simon Singh: Big Bang is a clear and accessible history of the Big Bang theory—an idea we take for granted now, but that has a long, complicated, and fascinating history.

Here are the Space. We are constantly reading new and classic space books to find our favorite takes on the universe. Although many believe that the quantum-mechanics revolution of the s is settled science, Lee Smolin wants to disrupt that assumption. Smolin, a theoretical physicist based at the Perimeter Institute in Toronto, argues that quantum mechanics is incomplete. The standard quantum model only allows us to know the position or trajectory of a subatomic particle — not both at the same time. Smolin has spent his career looking to "complete" quantum physics in a way that allows us to know both pieces of information.
