New book by the bestselling author of A Universe From Nothing, award-winning physicist and public intellectual, Lawrence Krauss tells the dramatic story of the scientific discoveries that see through the visible world and create our grand vision of the universe and our place within it.
Lawrence M. Krauss, Ph.D., is author of the international bestseller, A UNIVERSE FROM NOTHING, as well as THE PHYSICS OF STAR TREK, Foundation Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Physics Dept, Co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative, and Inaugural Director of the Origins Initiative at Arizona State University. He is an internationally known theoretical physicist with wide research interests, including the interface between elementary particle physics and cosmology, where his studies include the early universe, the nature of dark matter, general relativity and neutrino astrophysics. He has long been involved in issues of science and society and has helped spearhead national efforts to educate the public about science, ensure sound public policy, and defend science against attacks at a variety of levels, including a national effort to defend the teaching of evolution in the public schools. Krauss and Richard Dawkins starred in a film documentary called The Unbelievers, which follows them as they discuss science and reason.
