An overview of the major issues in astrophysics and cosmology. “Dark” matter and energy are undetectable: either they don’t in fact exist, or we don’t know how to see them... Above and beyond the astrophysical phenomena themselves, this book offers epistemological reflections that are only rarely addressed.
In his first novel, Le Vase de Pépi, David Elbaz blended quantum physics with Egyptian mythology to take us on a fascinating journey through time in the world of particles. The inspiration for his new novel is once again time-travel, but now his vivid physicist's imagination, always on the lookout for strange paradoxes, moves constantly back and forth between Ancient China and the future.
