The Biggest Ideas in the Universe 1

Space, Time and Motion

Sean Carroll

Knowledge is power… Here is a landmark series from a stellar voice in popular science.

From a prize-winning scientist and communicator, a major trilogy that will introduce readers to the most interesting and cutting-edge ideas in physics. Sean Carroll opens up the world of physics and shows that you don’t need a science degree to understand how the world is put together and works.

In this first book, Carroll asks deep questions about the nature of space, time and change, laying out the framework of classical physics from Galileo and Euclid to Newton and Einstein. Starting with ideas that are centuries old, Spacetime and Motion unpacks the theory of relativity and investigates black holes. This is just the beginning of a journey through the most central and relevant ideas in physics.
