Events and issues dominating today’s news cycles also receive thorough attention.


The Edge of Physics: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Cosmology

Ananthaswamy, Anil
Bloomsbury 2011

Weaving together stories about the people and places at the heart of this research, while beautifully explaining the problems that scientists are trying to solve, Ananthaswamy provides a unique portrait of the universe and our quest to understand it. Why is the universe expanding at an ever faster rate? What is the nature of the ‘dark matter’ that makes up almost a quarter of the universe? Why does the universe appear fine-tuned for life? Ananthaswamy sets out in search of the world’s most audacious physics experiments.

Exploring the Universe: The Illustrated Guide to Cosmology

Clegg, Brian
Vivays 2012

This approachable guide brings alive humanity’s attempts to explain the existence of everything and explores the latest and best theories on how the universe came into being. The reader is taken beyond the certainties to explore the strange concepts that fill modern cosmology. Is the universe a hologram? Is everything we know part of a membrane floating in multidimensional space? Could we be living in a computer simulation? It sounds like science fiction, but these are among the ideas cosmologists seriously propose for the nature of reality.


Over the Rivers

Collier, Michael
Mikaya 2008

How a 6,000-foot-deep canyon was carved out by the erosive power of a single river How violent tectonic forces millions of years ago vaulted a river over a mountain Why one river takes its time meandering, another suddenly drops over a cliff, and a third slowly separates into a sprawling delta.

The Earth: An Intimate History

Fortey, Richard A.
Harper Perennial 2005

This book will change the way you see the world — permanently. The face of the earth, criss-crossed by chains of mountains like the scars of old wounds, has changed constantly over billions of years. Its shape records a remote past of earthquakes, volcanos and continental drift, and the ongoing subtle shifts that bring our planet alive. Richard Fortey introduces us to the earth’s distinct character, revealing the life that it leads when humans aren’t watching. He follows the continual movement of seabeds, valleys, mountain ranges and ice caps and shows how everything — our culture, natural history, even the formation of our cities — has its roots in geology.


A Brief History of Time

Hawking, Stephen
1988

A landmark volume in science writing by one of the great minds of our time, Stephen Hawking’s book explores such profound questions as: How did the universe begin—and what made its start possible? Does time always flow forward? Is the universe unending—or are there boundaries? Are there other dimensions in space? What will happen when it all ends? Told in language we all can understand, A Brief History of Time plunges into the exotic realms of black holes and quarks, of antimatter and “arrows of time,” of the big bang and a bigger God—where the possibilities are wondrous and unexpected.
