Abstract:

This ... book presents evidence that our true origins are not just human, or even terrestrial, but actually cosmic. [The book] takes us on a ... tour of today's new cosmic science and its stunning insights into the formation and evolution of the universe and all its structures - galaxies and galaxy clusters, stars within galaxies, planets that orbit those stars, and different forms of life on Earth and hits of life beyond. [This book] charts our ongoing quest to understand how our particular part of the universe spawned life, and if indeed life is unique to us ... Drawing on current cross-pollination among geology, biology, astrophysics, and cosmology, [this book] explains the soul-stirring leaps in our understanding of the universe while capturing the importance of such extraordinary events as the first image of a galaxy being born and the exploration of Martian frontiers by Spirit Rover.
