In this second edition, the author explores the origins of the Universe and considers its ultimate fate. He surveys the major players involved and the technical developments which led to the first detailed model of the Big Bang in the 1940s.
Where do we come from? How did the universe of stars, planets and people come into existence? Now revised and expanded, this second edition takes into account developments in cosmology and quantum physics since its first publication in 1986, and traces the historical path which has led physicists to an understanding of the big bang, the fireball in which our universe was born.
