The story starts not with the Big Bang but with the discovery by Edwin Hubble that our universe is expanding as a result of it. The author discusses cosmology, the universe, and humanity's place in it, rendering the concepts nearly understandable to readers of a scientific ilk. He visits professors studying neutrinos on an ice-covered lake in Siberia and journeys to the Very Large Telescope high in the mountains of eastern Chile. Mixing the odysseys of discovery with the men collecting the data creates a novel learning experience. Narrator L.J. Ganser takes just the right approach. His pace keeps the information flowing, and his mastery of the vocabulary of physics gives his delivery a smooth consistency. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
