    One thought on “Edge of the Universe A Voyage to the Cosmic Horizon and Beyond”

    1. Cosmology is currently going through a golden age. The studies of the origin, structure and fate of the universe is a fertile field at the moment. Observations on the cosmic microwave background radiation first by COBE in the 90s, by WMAP in 2007 and Planck in 2013 has given us a wealth of information about the origins of the universe and confirmed the inflationary big bang model. Type I supernova data in 1998 revealed the presence of a Dark Energy which is causing the expansion of the universe [...]

    2. I love reading cosmology-for-the-average-person books and this is one of the best and most recent. The writing is very clear and every chapter describes current research on the topic, including the names of the scientists, the universities or institutions where the studies are going on, and the questions they are trying to answer. The book begins in familiar territory, explanations of what we know about the Big Bang, then the story takes an intriguing turn, examining why the universe is so smoot [...]

    3. It has been many years since I enjoyed a scientific book as much as this one. I have to start by heartily agreeing with a statement from Space Review: " "Halpern writes for the educated layperson, and excels at using analogies to describe abstract astronomical concepts in terms easier to understand" This just touches on the skill and art that Mr. Halpern displays throughout this book. He takes you from early theories to the latest, identifying and crediting the researchers by name as the theorie [...]

    5. Edge of the Universe is a good, understandable summary of where cosmology and science are as of today. It focuses on the findings of the last decade or so, which are stunning. More importantly, the discoveries are subverting some of the cherished conclusions of accepted theories at the universal scale at least.The book goes beyond dark matter and dark energy to even discuss non-homogeniety of space including dark flow, galaxy voids and clusters, and many other phenomena which are in extremely ea [...]

    6. What can I say - this is scientific outreach at its best, in the best arena of science - physics.Paul Halpern's book not only explores beyond the horizon of observation, but makes the subject of cosmology within everyone's reach. He does this in a fun, non-condescending way, which unlike many science writers makes the reader feel included in the journey the book takes.On this Universal voyage, we encounter Dark matter and Dark energy; imagine what could be behind these significantly influential, [...]

    7. This is a great book for helping understand the "BIG" and "small" theories about the cosmos. Very readable but more importantly enjoyable. A lot of the topics are difficult to comprehend but Halpern does an amazing job of breaking them down and using everyday analogies. Throughout I was impressed how he explained the integral relationships of Quantum theories and the study of the Universe and its origins, providing the average reader with a better understanding of the contemporary theories. I hi [...]

    8. If you enjoy cosmology like i do, you will enjoy this book. Its not as eloquent as stephen hawking books, or as understandable as NDT would describe concepts, but it does a good job at explaining the latest in cosmology and our understanding of it. From 16th century astronomy to holographic principles, from theories on beginning of universe to different models of universes end, from quantum to infinite, from blackholes to multiverse, this book covers pretty much all the topics and the scientists [...]

    9. Such an entertaining and informative book about astrophysics. It's a great feeling to have a good understanding of dark matter, dark energy, and dark flow and to know the theories of the causes of each. The discussions of the possible futures for the cosmos are interesting too and it was gratifying to learn about the big rip, the big stretch, the big crunch, and the big freeze. I also think it's really cool that Stephen Hawking's initials are written in the billion light-year long letters in the [...]

    10. The information on worm holes and dark matter were the most interesting parts of the book. After that, I was bored by it. Granted, I knew this book might be a stretch since I am only mildly interested in cosmology, and since this book was a lot of "the history of" this is why I was bored by it.

    11. An excellent overview of Modern Cosmology and Quantum Physics. Could have used a bit more detail Re: Susskind's expansion of Holographic Theory and informational sub-space, overall a good read though.

    12. This was such a fantastic book. It was incredibly engaging and the information presented was so very cool and exciting. I love books about the universe, quantum mechanics, physics, and all the other science fiction-y things related to it. This is like real life science fiction and it's awesome.

    13. Got into too much details about chemistry at the end but the rest is pretty good. The beginning is great and puts together a lot of the latest theories about the universe. I was wondering how do these scientist make make their calculations, like how many galaxies we have?

    14. Pretty complete coverage of findings in cosmology. Analogies are not always the best--but then again the physicists just don't have a complete understanding.

    15. Um livro bastante acessível, mas que apenas se limita a reproduzir o que já foi escrito acerca do universo inúmeras vezes em livros bastante mais interessantes

    16. I thought it was very interesting all the way through, but the difficulty increases as you read. I would only recommend this book for science-lovers.
