THE 4% UNIVERSE Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and the Race to Discover the Rest of Reality

by | Read by Ray Porter

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

In an age when our telescopes can peer billions of years into the past, it’s humbling to learn that we don’t even know what 96 percent of the universe is made from. In this accessible audiobook, journalist Richard Panek explains the efforts of astronomers and physicists to unlock the twin mysteries of dark matter and dark energy. Ray Porter’s narration is perfectly paced, and his sonorous voice moves the story along with confidence, despite the sometimes technical nature of the text. But this is no dry physics lecture: Panek explains the quest for understanding through the colorful personalities who led the way, and Porter adds another layer of warmth with his characterizations.
