Description

Few would argue that the scientific revolution that began in the early 20th century transformed virtually every facet of our everyday lives, but what has it done for us lately? Quite a lot, you might well say, but in <i>This Changes Everything</i> author and scientist Colin Gillespie suggests that the revolution has barely gotten off the ground. He is quick to acknowledge and celebrate the victories (notably of general relativity and quantum mechanics) but in this provocative essay he looks at what holds us back from reaching even greater accomplishments and comes up with a startling conclusion. He sets out to revisit historical advances and frame them through the lens of imagination (what Einstein called a thought experiment) to come up with a new take on cosmology and physics - an elegant insight that changes everything.
