Book Summary

Bang! Space, time, matter... the Universe was born 13.7 billion years ago. Infinitely small at first, it expanded more rapidly than anyone can contemplate. Brian May, Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott explain how all this came about, from the moment when time and space came into existence, to the formation of the first stars, galaxies and planets, and to the evolution of human beings able to contemplate our own origins and ultimate destiny. Then on towards that destiny in the infinite future, long after the Earth has been consumed by the Red Giant Sun. The story is told in clear, straight forward terms, in the strict order in which the events happened, and uses no mathematics.

Bang! is an amazing story and this newly revised text brings it Bang! up to date. Is it fiction? The authors hope not, since it is based upon lifetimes work by great scientists such as Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking and hundreds of other brilliant minds. Enjoy, and let your imagination run riot.

Author Bio

Although best known to the world as the lead guitarist of supergroup Queen, Brian May recently completed the PhD in astrophysics which he abandoned when Queen first started to find fame.

Sir Patrick Moore was the presenter of the world's longest running television program--BBC TV's The Sky at Night, which was first broadcast in 1957. He authored more than 100 books, and played a unique role in astronomy education and popularizing science through 6 decades. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society­­­­--something he shared with Sir Isaac Newton.

Chris Lintott is best-known as the co-presenter, with Patrick, of "The Sky at Night". He took his first degree in Physics at Cambridge, then his PhD in Astrophysics at University College London, and is now doing further research at Oxford.
