Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs : The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe Paperback
by Lisa Randall
66 million years ago, a ten-mile-wide object from outer space hurtled into the Earth at incredible speed.
The impact annihilated the dinosaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet.
But what if this catastrophe was the sign of something greater: an opening vista onto the interconnectedness of the universe itself?
This is the story of the astounding forces that underpin our existence; a horizon-expanding tour of the cosmos that unifies what we know about the universe with new thinking.
From the far-flung reaches of space, the make-up of the universe and our solar system's place within it, to the mysterious and elusive stuff of dark matter and how it affects life here on Earth.
