Simon Singh’s Big Bang Reviewed

Course: Cosmos Explained. Prerequisites: None.: “The Big Bang, at first glance, seems incomprehensibly big and dauntingly abstract. But turn on a good FM radio, twiddle the dial and tune it in. There, in the intervals between stations, you hear a shushing sound. A tiny part of that sound is caused by radiation emitted just after the universe came into being , primordial light waves that stretched with the expansion of the universe and became transformed into radio waves. The Big Bang was way back then, but it’s also here and now, and never more so than in Mr. Singh’s stirring tale of scientific adventure.” (New York Times )
