Notă biografică

Marcus Chown is an award-winning writer and broadcaster. Formerly a radio astronomer at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, he is cosmology consultant of New Scientist. His books include The Ascent of Gravity, What A Wonderful World, Quantum Theory Cannot Hurt You, Felicity Frobisher and the Three-Headed Aldebaran Dust Devil, and We Need to Talk to Kelvin, which was short-listed for the 2010 Royal Society Book Prize.

Marcus was a regular guest on the BBC4 comedy-science show, It's Only A Theory, with Andy Hamilton and Reginald D. Hunter, and often appears on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch. Marcus lives in London with his wife, a Macmillan nurse. Whereas she does a very socially useful job, Marcus writes about things that are of absolutely no use to man or beast! Can time run backwards? Are there an infinity of universes playing out all possible histories? Was our Universe made as a DIY experiment by extraterrestrials in another universe?

Recenzii

The artwork is gloriously retro, echoing the original Ladybird house style but containing completely up to date information.
