Our Universe

A Journey Into Mystery

by Jeff Jones

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Like all books on the subject, Our Universe: A Journey into Mystery is full of images of exploding stars and colliding galaxies. It's all very nice, but don't you want more than just another "science on parade" book? There are powers and distances beyond human comprehension. Darkness surrounds us, and most of this place in which we live is not available to our senses. There's a much more profound story. Everything we know comes from the Universe, but what we don't know is alluring. This book aims to unravel the mysteries of the Universe—to answer our questions about meaning and purpose.
Description
Like all books on the subject, Our Universe: A Journey into Mystery is full of images of exploding stars and colliding galaxies. It's all very nice, but don't you want more than just another "science on parade" book? There are powers and distances beyond human comprehension. Darkness surrounds us, and most of this place in which we live is not available to our senses. There's a much more profound story. Everything we know comes from the Universe, but what we don't know is alluring. This book aims to unravel the mysteries of the Universe—to answer our questions about meaning and purpose. We have learned more about the Universe in the past 25 years than in all of recorded history. Thanks to computers, the internet, and the availability of telescopes, it's now possible to tell the story of the Universe in 21st-century language that any interested layman can follow. Using these tools, the secrets of this extraordinary place are laid bare. The Universe is ready to answer our questions. We are prepared to listen. Come along—journey into Mystery. This is the story I always wanted to write. It is hopefully the story you are looking to discover.
