The quantum universe : (and why anything that can happen, does) by Brian Cox( Book )

25 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Swedish and held by 1,660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Quantum Universe brings together two authors on a brilliantly ambitious mission to show that everyone can understand the deepest questions of science. But just what is quantum physics? How does it help us understand the universe? Where does it leave Newton and Einstein? And how - for all its apparently counter-intuitive ideas - can we be sure that the theory is good? The bizarre behaviour of the atoms and energy that make up the universe has lead to some woolly pronouncements on the nature of all interconnectedness - but Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw reveal the simple and understandable theories that allow for concrete, yet astonishing, predictions about the world around us. From entangled twins to the incredible double-slit experiment, The Quantum Universe will give every reader the most up-to-date picture of that amazing subatomic world, where thousands of years of physics must be rewritten completely
Universal : a guide to the cosmos by Brian Cox( Book )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this journey of scientific exploration, the authors consider some of the most fundamental questions about our Earth, Sun, and solar system--and the star-filled galaxies beyond. How big is our solar system? How quickly is space expanding? How big is the universe? What is it made of? Some of these questions can be answered on the basis of observations you can make in your own backyard. Other answers draw on the astonishing information now being gathered by teams of astronomers operating at the frontiers of the known universe.--

What time is it? by Judith Grey( Visual )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do we really know what time it is? Cern physicist Professor Brian Cox (and author of E=mc2) unlocks the secrets of time in this entertaining and informative program. His journey starts with the Sun, our historical dictator of time, but Brian discovers that the world doesn't always spin like clockwork in fact, it flutters, like an irregular heartbeat. In his search for a more reliable way to tell the time, he experiences the physical definition of a second with a cesium atomic clock, then jets across the Atlantic to discover that time can speed up or slow down depending on how near an object is to a strong gravitational field. Still looking for answers, he consults modern ideas like string theory and quantum mechanics that are pointing the way to future breakthroughs. Time dictates what we do, when and for how long. In What Time Is It?, Brian Cox deepens our understanding of time while stirring the depths of our imagination
