Story of Universe


About the Book
“Physicist Stephen Weinberg had said, “”The effort to understand the Universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little above the level of farce and gives it some of the grace of tragedy””. The effort to understand and explain the Universe has always been one of the greatest intellectual challenges to mankind since the dawn of civilisation.
In this comprehensive work, Govind Bhattacharjee takes us through a delightful journey of intellectual discovery to the origin of the Universe and its subsequent developments till the evolution of life on Earth. Springing into existence from a formless void some 13.7 billion years ago, the story of evolution of the Universe is a most fascinating voyage through the depths of time and space that takes us to the frontiers of human knowledge.
