Inhaltsangabe: A fascinating and accessible mix of history and cutting-edge science, "Measuring the Universe" tells the story of how man has attempted to measure distance in space. From the early Greeks' experiments in working out the circumference of the earth, through Newton's estimates of the distance to the nearest stars, to the very latest developments in theories as to what is beyond the borders of the observable universe, Kitty Ferguson captures the wonder of new discovery and explains difficult scientific concepts in a highly readable and engaging style.
Über den Autor: Kitty Ferguson is a highly acclaimed popular science writer and lecturer, with a special interest in physics and cosmology. She has worked closely with Stephen Hawking who recommends only Kitty's books and his own on the suggested reading list which he sends out to any queries.
