Big Bang by Heather Couper
How did the universe begin? Once the ultimate mystery, all the evidence now points to our universe being born in circumstances of unimaginable power and fury, called the Big Bang. This event not only created the universe, but the whole of space and time. This work explains those dramatic few moments, bringing the origin of the universe firmly down to earth. It takes the reader on a journey through time, following the universe from its birth and youth to old age and death. On the way, it tackles such concepts as "How do we know there was a Big Bang?", "Is there an edge to the universe?" and primordial black holes. It is the sister volume to "Black Holes".
