THE ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION
OF THE UNIVERSE
Ben Zuckerman and Matthew A. Malkan


Recently, scientists have made remarkable advances in providing concrete answers to these profound questions. The new technologies of observational astronomy, with its ground- and space-based gamma-ray, X-ray, ultraviolet, infrared and radio telescopes, are truly producing a new golden age of discovery. This book presents the excitement of these new discoveries in the larger context of cosmic evolution. Leading researchers, on the cutting edge of these fields, contribute to this book explaining these subjects in laymen's terms to the broader public. They offer the latest insights into these rapidly advancing fields, covering the origin and evolution of the universe, chemical elements, galaxies, evolution of stars, planets and biological life.
