Superstrings and other things




Superstrings and other things
~
Calle C.I.




From Publishers Weekly
Nuclear physicist Calle, NASA's principle investigator of Martian soil, traces physics from Newton's law of inertia, to the forebears of quantum mechanics, to Gell-Mann's quarks, to NASA's COBE satellite (which detected "the very remnants of creation") and all the big and small wheels en route. Calle's sizable, conversational, well-rounded history-cum-lay-guide makes of physics a fun, accessible narrative peopled by fanatics and iconoclasts. Illus.
