Wrinkles in time by George Smoot( Book )

56 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in 10 languages and held by 2,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wrinkles in Time presents the hard science behind the structured violence of the big bang theory through breathtakingly clear, lucid images and meaningful comparisons. Scientists and nonscientists alike can follow with rapt attention the story of how, in a fiery creation, wrinkles formed in space ultimately to become stars, galaxies, and even greater delicate structures. Anyone can appreciate the implications of a universe whose end is written in its beginnings - whose course developed according to a kind of cosmic DNA, which guided the universe from simplicity and symmetry to ever-greater complexity and structure. As controversial as it may seem today, Wrinkles in Time reveals truths that, in an earlier century, would have doomed its proclaimers to the fiery stake. For four thousand years some people have accepted the Genesis account of cosmic origin; for most of this century, scientists debated two rival scientific explanations known as the steady state and big bang theories. And now, Wrinkles in Time tells what really happened

Cosmic microwave background anisotropy detected by the COBE DMR by George Smoot( Visual )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite has probed the early universe primarily through precise measurements of the of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation. George Smoot, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, presents results from the analysis of data collected by the COBE Differential Microwave Radiometers (COBE DMR). The CMB spectrum is well described as a 2.73K blackbody and in combination with other spectrum measurements reveal a great deal about the thermal history of the early universe. The COBE maps of the CMB anisotropy reveal evidence of the formation of structure in the universe, consistent with theories such as inflation and cold dark matter

The COBE satellite, launched on November 18, 1989, is measuring and mapping the sky in the wavelength range 1 micron to 9 mm. This mission is designed to study the cosmic microwave and infrared background radiations and the cosmological implications of these backgrounds

The search for the embryo universe (George Smoot)( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Host Marcia Alvar speaks with George Smoot, astrophysicist, and author of Wrinkles in Time. They discuss Dr. Smoot's quest to discover the origins of the universe. The first step was to recognize and work with the four basic observations of the know universe: the universe has order; it is expanding; it is composed of common elements; and it has temperature. Building upon these tenants, scientists were able to create a very sensitive dish that received relic heat radiation that still exists from the earlier universe. Using this data they were able to construct a picture of the universe when it was only 3,000 years old

Show me God : what the message from space is telling us about God by Fred Heeren( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in Polish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Show Me God brings together the great cosmologists of our time to talk about their discoveries--and the implications about God. In exclusive interviews, Stephen Hawking, George Smoot, Alan Guth, Arno Penzias and others speak of how their discoveries affect life's big questions: creation, the fine-tuning of the universe, why we're here, and the nature of God. Getting as close to the discoveries as possible, Fred Heeren interviews Nobel prize-winning astrophysicists, NASA team leaders, and top theoretical physicists to explore life's big questions. Heeren uses humor, dialogues, and a multi-media format to examine the issues; he also tells the stories of how the major discoveries were made. Fred Heeren has written for Nature, Scientific American, New Scientist, The Smithsonian, The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. Show Me God explores: the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, and the likelihood of contact; the origins of everything; God and non-god explanations; the discoveries and evidence leading to the Big Bang theory; Christian faith and the Big Bang; fine-tuning and alternative explanations for its appearance; is the gospel logical?; the healthy skeptic; the origins of science; Q & A with leading cosmologists; a little science fiction between the science facts"--Amazon.com
