Book Description:

The Big Bang Model postulates that, 12 to 14 billion years ago, the portion of the universe we can see today was only a few millimeters across. It has since expanded from this hot dense state into the vast and much cooler cosmos we currently inhabit, leaving traces of its origins behind to fuel scientific speculation and research.

About the Author:

Martin Ratcliffe teaches cosmology at Wichita State University, Wichita, KS.
