A fortunate universe : life in a finely-tuned cosmos by Geraint F Lewis( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last forty years, scientists have uncovered evidence that if the Universe had been forged with even slightly different properties, life as we know it - and life as we can imagine it - would be impossible. Join us on a journey through how we understand the Universe, from its most basic particles and forces, to planets, stars and galaxies, and back through cosmic history to the birth of the cosmos. Conflicting notions about our place in the Universe are defined, defended and critiqued from scientific, philosophical and religious viewpoints. The authors' engaging and witty style addresses what fine-tuning might mean for the future of physics and the search for the ultimate laws of nature. Tackling difficult questions and providing thought-provoking answers, this volumes challenges us to consider our place in the cosmos, regardless of our initial convictions

The accelerating universe by Brian Schmidt( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dr. Brian Schmidt was awarded the Nobel Prize for his shared discovery of the accelerating expansion of the universe. In 1998, two teams traced back the expansion of the universe over billions of years. The scientists discovered that it was accelerating, a startling discovery contrary to the then-current theory that the universe's expansion should be slowing down. This new understanding suggests that more than 70 percent of the cosmos is contained in a previously unknown form of matter, called dark energy. As the leader of the High-Redshift Supernova Search Team, Schmidt describes this historic development and explains how astronomers have used observations to trace our universe back more than 13 billion years, leading them to ponder the ultimate fate of the cosmos
