Atom Summary


Atom: An Odyssey from the Big Bang to Life on Earth by Lawrence M. Krauss

Not only is matter constantly changing - or "morphing" - but it was created at the beginning of the universe and will cease to exist only when our universe does. In this work, Lawrence M. Krauss describes the journey of a single oxygen atom throughout our universe. Starting with its emergence at the Big Bang, Krauss shows how atoms were then forged in the nuclear furnaces of stars. From there, we follow the atom as it travels across the Milky Way, and finally arrives on Earth, where it finds itself located in a drop of water. Along the way, Krauss supplies provocative reflections on the bigger questions, such as the origins of DNA (on a comet?) and the place of atoms in our everyday life. A combination of cutting-edge science and everyday phenomena, "Atom" allows us to see both in a new light.
