Paolo Saraceno, "Beyond the Stars: Our Origins and the Search for Life in The Universe"
ISBN: 9814295531, 981429554X | 2012 | PDF | 388 pages | 11 MB
What is the origin of the universe? Are we alone in the Universe? Using clear and plain language, the author explores these two interesting scientific-philosophical themes with a broad range of studies, including astronomy, cosmology, chemistry, biology, geology and planet science.
The first part discusses the origins of everything, from the Big Bang to humankind. It follows the long course of evolution from original matter to the formation of more complex structures, from the furthest galaxies to the nearest stars, from planets to organic molecules, from the first and most elementary forms of life through to the reptiles, the dinosaurs and the advent of man.
