The Universe Next Door

The Universe Next Door

by Marcus Chown (Author)


Can time run backwards? Can we live forever? Could our universe have been created as a DIY experiment by superior beings in another universe? These questions may sound crazy but, like nothing else, they explore the limits of our current knowledge and highlight the key issues scientists at the cutting edge are wrestling to understand. As Cosmology Consultant at the New Scientist, Marcus Chown often comes across ideas that leave his head spinning. In this hugely entertaining, accessible and mind-blowing book, he explores the ramifications of, as he puts it, science with the 'wow!' factor.
