'A incredible, compelling and insightful voyage to the frontier of data from a superb author with a deep understanding.' Brian Cox

What is the universe particularly made up of? How can we comprehend? persist with the map of the invisible to discover out...

Over the final sixty years, scientists worldwide have labored jointly to discover the elemental ingredients of topic, and the forces that govern their behaviour. the end result, up to now, is the ‘Standard version’ of simple debris: a theoretical map of the fundamental development blocks of the universe. With the invention of the Higgs boson in 2012, the map as we all know it used to be accomplished, but in addition prolonged into unusual new territory.

A Map of the Invisible is an explorer’s advisor to the normal version and the intense nation-states of particle physics. After shrinking us right down to the dimensions of a sub-atomic particle, pioneering physicist Jon Butterworth takes us on board his learn vessel for a trip looking for atoms and quarks, electrons and neutrinos, and the forces that form the universe. step-by-step, discovery by way of discovery, we trip into the area of the unseen, from the atom to black holes and darkish topic, and past, to the outer reaches of the cosmos and the frontiers of human knowledge.

Beautifully illustrated, with progressively evolving maps providing a creative visible word list because the trip progresses, A Map of the Invisible offers a vital creation to our global, and to particle physics. it's a landmark paintings of non-fiction through one of many nice scientists and technology writers of today.

Woher kommen die vielfältigen Materieformen im Kosmos? Welche Gesetzmäßigkeiten treiben ihre Entwicklung? Die naturwissenschaftlich-technische Revolution der letzten Jahrzehnte ermöglichte die Entdeckung einer Fülle neuer Materieformen und Einblicke in ihre Entwicklungsgesetzmäßigkeiten. Trotzdem beantwortet eine idealistische Richtung in der modernen Physik diese Fragen mit der modernen Schöpfungsgeschichte eines "Urknalls" und einem Ende des Kosmos im "Wärmetod".
