We Need to Talk About Kelvin
Marcus Chown uncovers the cosmic signs in the world around us. Look around you ...
The reflection of your face in a window tells you that the universe at its deepest level is orchestrated by chance.
The iron in a spot of blood on your finger tells you that out in space there must be a furnace at a temperature of 4.5 billion degrees.
The static on a badly tuned TV screen tells you that the universe began in a big bang.
In fact, your very existence tells you this may not be the only universe but merely one among an infinity of others, stacked like the pages of a never-ending book.
Marcus Chown, author of the hugely successful Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You , shows how familiar features of the world reveal profound truths about the ultimate nature of reality. With the aid of a falling leaf, or a rose, or a starry night sky, Chown makes cutting-edge science clear and meaningful. His new book will literally change the way you see the world.
