The Earth may not be flat, but the universe is. And that’s just the start of it. Tears in the space-time continuum, multiple universes and dimensions, faster-than-light-speed communication, the nature of creation… In this wonderfully enlightening book, Brian Greene explains it all. Using popular culture references such as Homer Simpson and the X-Files, Greene illustrates in everyman language the scope of modern astrophysics and cosmological theory. He explores string theory, the most successful attempt at a unified field theory, in a convincing and understandable way. The spookiest part about this book is that the science backs it up.
