THE ASCENT OF GRAVITY The Quest to Understand the Force that Explains Everything

by | Read by Adjoa Andoh

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Here we have a popular science approach to a heavy topic, and narrator Adjoa Andoh could hardly be better. Author Chown takes on the force of gravity, "the weakest force in the everyday world yet . . . the strongest force in the universe." Andoh approaches the material in a way that is very British: learned-sounding, expressive, and emotionally uplifting. She uses accents for variety, giving Einstein a German accent, for example. This is a fine history of gravitational science, pre- and post-quantum, with some speculation about future discoveries as we enter the further realm of dark matter and dark energy.
