Origins explores cosmic science's stunning new insights into
the formation and evolution of our universe—of the cosmos,
of galaxies and galaxy clusters, of stars within galaxies,
of planets that orbit those stars, and of different forms of
life that take us back to the first three seconds and
forward through three billion years of life on Earth to
today's search for life on other planets.
Drawing on the current cross-pollination of geology,
biology, and astrophysics, Origins explains the thrilling
daily breakthroughs in our knowledge of the universe from
dark energy to life on Mars to the mysteries of space and
time. Distilling complex science in clear and lively prose,
co-authors Neil deGrasse Tyson and Donald Goldsmith conduct
a galvanizing tour of the cosmos revealing what the universe
has been up to while turning part of itself into us. 32
pages of color illustrations.
