The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey through Space, Time, and Beyond by Christophe Galfard
Call Number: 523.1 G155u
Quantum physics, string theory, dark energy, parallel universes. Even if we are interested in these concepts, their language is the language of math, which means that despite our best intentions of learning, most of us are quickly brought up short by complex equations or graphs. To remedy this, Galfard uses his skills as a theoretical physicist and young adult author to create stories with everyday similes and metaphors that show, not explain, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe.
