极简宇宙史 | The Universe in Your Hand by Christophe Galfard

Quantum physics, black holes, string theory, the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, parallel universes: even if we are interested in these fundamental concepts of our world, their language is the language of math. Which means that despite our best intentions of finally grasping, say, Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, most of us are quickly brought up short by a snarl of nasty equations or an incomprehensible graph.

Christophe Galfard's mission in life is to spread modern scientific ideas to the general public in entertaining ways. Using his considerable skills as a brilliant theoretical physicist and successful young adult author, The Universe in Your Hand employs the immediacy of simple, direct language to show us, not explain to us, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe. To understand what happens to a dying star, we are asked to picture ourselves floating in space in front of it. To get acquainted with the quantum world, we are shrunk to the size of an atom and then taken on a journey. Employing everyday similes and metaphors, addressing the reader directly, and writing stories rather than equations renders these astoundingly complex ideas in an immediate and visceral way.

Utterly captivating and entirely unique, The Universe in Your Hand will find its place among other classics in the field.

《极简宇宙史》我们的存在的确让太阳系与众不同。夏夜,你躺在沙滩上,仰望夜空。一颗小小的流星安静滑过,还来不及许愿,不可思议的事情发生了:你一下子穿越五十亿年,走进时光的旅行……

霍金亲传弟子、物理学博士克里斯托弗·加尔法德带领我们踏上一场关于宇宙的过去、现在和未来的惊奇之旅。不需要图表和方程式,只需凭着奇诡的想象,我们就可走向衰亡的太阳表面,飞越遥远的星系,感受来自黑洞的死亡魅力……你可以轻松读懂时至今日的宇宙神奇,继续探究关于上帝的存在、时间的起源以及人类的未来。
