You Are Here

A User's Guide to the Universe
A non fiction book by

Have you boggled your mind today? You Are Here has it all. Literally all, from quantum foam to the Unobservable Universe. What science tells about our alien world belongs to all of us, and it can be imagined and grasped and understood. People say that this or that thing is "just too big (or small, or complicated, or weird) to imagine" - but let's not give up so easily! Let's see if we can find ways to imagine them. Because science tells us things about where we live that are, in the most literal sense of that overused word, wonderful. And a universe is a terrible thing to waste. If the Milky Way is Boston, and Andromeda is New York City, the giant elliptical galaxy IC 1101 stretches from New England to the Carolinas - and our entire solar system out to Neptune is a grain of sugar in Harvard Square. EXTRA! Notes on everything from cellular slime molds and rogue waves to Dark Energy and the Linde Universe. EXTRA EXTRA!! (So exciting, you may have a Lorentz Contraction) "Einstein Sheds Light on Time: The Tale of Zippy the Tourist."
