Banyen's Description: 

In the wake of one of the most groundbreaking scientific breakthroughs in modern times, the March 2014 discovery of gravitational ripples from the Big Bang—an apparent confirmation of Alan Guth and Andrei Linde’s theory of cosmic inflation—John Brockman, publisher of the influential online science salon Edge.org, here gathers some of the worlds best-known physicists and science writers to explain the Universe. Contributors include Brian Greene, Walter Isaacson, Brian Cox, Nobel Prize-winners Murray Gell-Mann and Frank Wilczek, and more.

In Universe, today’s most influential science writers present brand new research and science behind our evolving understanding of the universe and everything in it. Contributors and topics include:

  • Think About Nature from Lee Smolin on math, cosmology, and how to make a theory of the whole universe.
  • Is There a Higgs? from Brian Cox (presenter of the BBCs Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of Life) on the Large Hadron Collider and his work researching the existence of a Higgs-Boson particle.
  • The Cyclic Universe by Neil Turok on the fundamental laws of nature, what came before the big-bang, and how we can come to a unified theory for the origin of the universe.
  • Quantum Monkeys from Seth Lloyd (Author of Programming the Universe) on computational revolutions and the informational revolution that brought the universe into being.
  • The Energy of Empty Space That Isn’t Zero by Lawrence Krauss (Author of A Universe From Nothing) on gravity, dark matter, and our understanding of the energy of empty space.
  • Einstein: An Edge Symposium, on the great physicist’s life and work, featuring Brian Greene, author of The Fabric of the Cosmos, and Walter Isaacson, author of Einstein: His Life and Universe and Steve Jobs.
