How to Love the Universe

A Scientist's Odes to the Hidden Beauty Behind the Visible World

eBook - 2018
Rate this:
In the vein of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics, a fascinating, eye-opening reconsideration of the marvels of space, time, physics, and more. How to Love the Universe is a new kind of science writing by an author truly enamored of the world around him. In ten short chapters of lyrical prose-each one an ode to an awe-inspiring realm of the universe-Stefan Klein uses everyday objects as a springboard to meditate on the beauty of the underlying science. Klein sees in a single rose the magical interdependence of all life; a greying beard leads him to ponder the irreversibility of time; a marble conjures the birth of the cosmos. As he contemplates the deepest mysteries-the nature of reality, dark matter, humanity's place among the galaxies, and more-Klein encourages us to fall in love with the universe the way scientists do: with a grasp of the key concepts that bring to life the wonders of, really, everything.
