The Nine Numbers of the Cosmos by Michael Rowan-Robinson
Oxford University Press | 1999-12-09 | ISBN: 0198504446| 192 pages | PDF | 12 MB
How old is the universe? What do the atoms in our bodies, our very existence, tell us about the history of the universe? How heavy is the vacuum? How do galaxies form? Michael Rowan-Robinson answers these questions and encapsulates all that modern astronomy has discovered about the universe
around nine numbers. His motto is Montaigne's "What do I know?" And the reader emerges with a genuine feel for what we do really know about the universe and also what we do not.
