Popular Science

Is There Life on Mars? The 20 Big Universe Questions Synopsis

Is There Life On Mars? will help you start to answer 20 of the most perplexing and fascinating questions about the universe, such as: Why do the planets stay in orbit? Was Einstein right? What is Dark Matter? Are we made from Stardust? Is there cosmological evidence for God? Distilling the wisdom and research of scientists operating at the cutting edge of their field, Stuart Clark's book is a stimulating and challenging guide to the wonders of the universe.

The Good Book Guide Review

Produced in a clear, large font with occasional illustrations to clarify tricky points, and chapters short enough to retain the attention of even the most casual of readers, this is a cleverly written book by a journalist who also happens to have a PhD in astrophysics. The twenty questions turn on the nature, age and size of the universe, the composition of stars, the formation of the universe and the earth, black holes, dark matter, dark energy, stardust, time and space travel, alternative universes, discussion of whether Einstein was right about gravitational force versus space-time warp, and the cosmological evidence for God.
