We are living today in the golden age of cosmology. Over the past few decades, some of the biggest cosmic questions have been transformed from dreamy theorizing to hard-won discovery. We now understand the history of our universe better than we understand the history of our own planet. And yet many answers are still tantalizingly out of reach. In What’s Eating the Universe? award-winning astrophysicist and best-selling author Paul Davies takes us on a dazzling tour of the cosmic frontier, lucidly explaining what we now know, and exploring the intriguing – and sometimes terrifying – possibilities that lie before us. What happened before the big bang? Will Earth will be annihilated by a vacuum bubble? And, can black holes remember what they ate? Laying bare the audacious research that today offers mind-bending solutions to these and other mysteries, Davies leads us up to the greatest outstanding enigmas of all: why the universe exists in the first place, why the laws of nature are as they are, and how a system of mindless, purposeless particles brought forth conscious, thinking beings, who are today poised to undergo a shift in cosmic understanding like never before.
