Краткое описание

A Brief History of the Universe: From Ancient Babylon to the Big Bang.

Since the dawn of humanity, people have gazed at the stars and attempted to define the heavens. Here astrophysicist J.P. McEvoy—also the author of Introducing Quantum Theory, Introducing Stephen Hawking, and Eclipse—gives us both a tour of the universe and a 4,000-year history of those who have studied it. From the first recorded observations of the moon in ancient Mesopotamia to 2006 Nobel Prize winners John Mather and George Smoot, whose COBE satellite observatories mapped the residual radiation of the Big Bang, McEvoy tells the story of how our knowledge of the cosmos has grown and evolved. Aristotle, Nicolaus Copernicus, Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Edwin Hubble, and Hawking all appear, with detailed descriptions of their contributions, as do little-mentioned scientists like Henrietta Leavitt, who diligently studied Cepheid stars at the turn of the 20th century and found in them a way to determine astronomical distances.
