Off this review: Why Does E=MC2? (And Why Should We Care?)
By Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw (Da Capo Press)
To move beyond a cursory understanding of Einstein’s iconic equation, put yourself in the adept hands of physicists and science educators Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw. Using clear language and a few clearly explained equations, they demystify physics’ most counterintuitive claims, connecting the dots between space-time, electromagnetic fields, invariance, and Galileo’s earlier theory of relativity. Cox and Forshaw place these ideas in context, ultimately demonstrating how the Large Hadron Collider, where Cox works, is an essential tool in a new level of understanding the laws of our universe.
