Cosmology Revealed: Living Inside the Cosmic Egg
Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungThis book presents a clear explanation of the nature of the universe, including a special color feature incorporated in the book that offers three-dimensional views of the surrounding universe to ever greater depths. It assumes no prior knowledge of astronomy or cosmology and will attract general readers and beginning amateur astronomers. It provides much more on large-scale structures than other popular-level cosmology books. The mix of cosmology, large scale structures, anthropic principle, and perspectives on the universe is unique.
