Description

WHERE DID THE UNIVERSE COME FROM?

WHAT WAS THERE BEFORE IT?

WHAT WILL THE FUTURE BRING?

AND FINALLY, WHY IS THERE SOMETHING RATHER THAN NOTHING?

 
Bestselling author and acclaimed physicist Lawrence Krauss offers a paradigm-shifting view of how everything that exists came to be in the first place.


One of the few prominent scientists today to have crossed the chasm between science and popular culture, Krauss describes the staggeringly beautiful experimental observations and mind-bending new theories that demonstrate not only can something arise from nothing, something will always arise from nothing. With a new preface about the significance of the discovery of the Higgs particle, A Universe from Nothing uses Krauss’s characteristic wry humor and wonderfully clear explanations to take us back to the beginning of the beginning, presenting the most recent evidence for how our universe evolved—and the implications for how it’s going to end. 

Provocative, challenging, and delightfully readable, this is a game-changing look at the most basic underpinning of existence and a powerful antidote to outmoded philosophical, religious, and scientific thinking.

Професор Лорънс Краус е един от първите физици, предположили че по-голямата част от масата и енергията във Вселената се намира в празното пространство (проблем, известен днес като "тъмна енергия"). В книгата си "Вселена от нищото" той защитава тезата, че "нищото" (т.е. празното пространство без частици и радиация) е нестабилно и спонтанно произвежда квантови частици и материя, както и че е възможно Вселената да е възникнала без необходимост от създател (бог). Разбира се, тази идея предизвиква гняв у множество теолози и философи, които го обвиняват в неправилно разбиране на термина "нищо". В книгата си Краус не само се защитава умело срещу тях, а напротив - понякога търси битката. Сайънтифик Американ нарича Краус "обществен интелектуалец" и той наистина е такъв - вдъхновен от легендарния физик Ричард Файнман и популярния журналист Кристофър Хичънс, той не се страхува да прекрачи академичния праг и да разгледа проблеми, по които се изказват философи и теолози без научно образование.
