Abstract:

Answers to science's most enduring questions from "Can I build a transporter, like on "Star Trek"?" and "Is there life on other planets?" to "What is empty space made of?" In "A User's Guide to the Universe," physicists Dave Goldberg and Jeff Blomquist make good on two promises: you?ll get answers and you won't have to decipher any equations to understand them. (Well, maybe just one very short and very familiar equation.) This quirky and fun book takes you on a fascinating tour of the universe as we know it by asking (and answering) weird, important, and provocative questions Explains subjects as diverse as special relativity, quantum mechanics, randomness, time travel, the expanding universe, and much more Includes dozens of delightfully groan-worthy cartoons that explain everything from special relativity to dark matter.
