About this product
- DescriptionThis is selected as a Book of the Year by Mail on Sunday and Financial Times. 66 million years ago, a ten-mile-wide object from outer space hurtled into the Earth at incredible speed and destroyed the disaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet. Where did it come from, and why? And how is this connected to dark matter - the most mysterious, elusive stuff in the universe, that interacts with gravity like ordinary matter but doesn't emit or absorb light. Astromers kw it's there but it is literally invisible. Dark Matter and the Disaurs tells the story of Big Bang theory, cosmological inflation, the make-up of the universe and our solar system's place in it; it's about mass extinctions through the ages, what we kw has hit the Earth and what might hit us in the future. And it explores the radical idea that dark matter might ultimately have been responsible for the disaurs' extinction. It includes a horizon-expanding tour of the cosmos that blends what we kw about the universe with new thinking, Dark Matter and the Disaurs is a book full of wonders, from a gifted scientist and writer.
