Genesis of the big bang by Ralph Alpher( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a story of the theory of the Big Bang model of the birth of the Universe. All of it is here, pre-Big Bang cosmology, development of the Big Bang theory, observational confirmations, alternatives to the model and the future of the Universe according to laws of the Big Bang theory. But more than just a concise, readable exploration of theory, "Genesis of the Big Bang" is a firsthand account of the work and struggle that went into proposing and developing these models by two of the scientists who were first to suggest possible proof of a Big Bang: residual background radiation. Alpher lets us into the world of the working physicist and shows us the frustrations, the exhilaration, and the realities of taking part in one of the most significant, fundamental cosmological transitions." ""Genesis of the Big Bang" is a fascinating account of what it is like to be at the forefront of theoretical physics and the emotion that can ride along with it, as well as a clear and refreshing look at our current knowledge of the way the universe works."--Jacket
