Jon Butterworth's A Map of the Invisible: Journeys into Particle Physics PDF

By Jon Butterworth

'A marvelous, compelling and insightful voyage to the frontier of information from an outstanding author with a deep understanding.' Brian Cox

What is the universe relatively made from? How will we understand? keep on with the map of the invisible to discover out...

Over the final sixty years, scientists around the globe have labored jointly to discover the basic ingredients of subject, and the forces that govern their behaviour. the end result, to this point, is the ‘Standard version’ of straightforward debris: a theoretical map of the fundamental construction 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 traditional version and the intense nation-states of particle physics. After shrinking us all the way 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 through discovery, we trip into the realm of the unseen, from the atom to black holes and darkish subject, and past, to the outer reaches of the cosmos and the frontiers of human knowledge.

Beautifully illustrated, with progressively evolving maps supplying an artistic visible thesaurus because the trip progresses, A Map of the Invisible offers an important creation to our global, and to particle physics. it's a landmark paintings of non-fiction by way of one of many nice scientists and technological know-how writers of today.

Nell'universo sconfinato, niente e nessuno può correre veloce come l. a. luce. Nei buchi neri tutto può entrare e nulla può uscire. Lo spazio ed il pace sono una cosa sola. los angeles massa curva lo spazio-tempo nel suo dintorno. Non c'è spazio, né pace assoluto. Ognuno ha il suo pace e il suo spazio. los angeles velocità e l. a. gravità rallentano lo scorrere del pace.
