The Universe in Your Hand


Writer and physicist, Christophe Galfard (who was supervised at Cambridge by Stephen Hawking) explains and explores incredibly complex ideas in his book “The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey Through Space, Time and Beyond” but makes it accessible and fun for anybody with a little cosmos curiosity. Beginning the book five billion years in the future, watching the sun die, Galfard takes readers back to the present day and elucidates difficult concepts like black holes, string theory, parallel universes and the sheer vastness of time and space.
