Beschreibung

Science journalist Govert Schilling takes the reader on a whirlwind journey through time by describing the evolution of the cosmos, from the beginning of space and time fourteen billion years ago, to the creation of the Earth and humankind. Ending with a glance into the distant future of the universe, the book's combination of compelling text and breathtaking photographs provides an impressive vision of the place of man in the cosmos. Govert Schilling is a Dutch science writer and astronomy publicist. He is a contributing editor of Sky and Telescope magazine, and regularly writes for the news sections of Science and New Scientist. Schilling is the astronomy writer for de Volkskrant, one of the largest national daily newspapers in The Netherlands, and frequently talks about the Universe on Dutch radio broadcasts.

Pressestimmen

'Evolving Cosmos contains all the arguments and amazing facts for an exciting discussion about life, the universe and everything.' Andre Kuipers, ESA Astronaut '... what a deliciously informative, beautiful new work ... on a never-ending subject!' Wim T. Schippers, artist and presenter of the Dutch National Science Quiz 'This is a book to read, to re-read, and to cherish.' Frank Deboosere, Dutch TV meteorologist '... a triumph. Schilling has a deep understanding of his subject and writes with verve and enthusiasm. Nobody has written a popular history of the universe as detailed as this before ... Every step of the story is illustrated with stunning colour images ... A beautiful, awe-inspiring book.' New Scientist 'Schilling has a knack for arranging and simplifying the ideas so they're easily digestible and not too challenging.' Focus 'It is written in a very accessible style and is lavishly illustrated with a good clear explanation of the pictures and how they fit into the developing theme written in the book. As someone who has limited knowledge of how our universe arrived at its current state I found the book informative and interesting to read.' Spaceflight '... Schilling uses this book to paint a far wider canvas than the universe as revealed by the telescope. ... If you want a quick and beautiful look at human knowledge on the grandest scale, this book is the place to go.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'The many illustrations are useful but it is [the] words which paint pictures in your mind ... it's worth getting the book for the chapters on the formation of the planets and emergence of life on Earth alone ... a wonderful account of how we and our world came into existence and the time-scales involved ... ' Popular Astronomy 'What sets this book apart is its presentation - both in the way it is written and the manner in which it is illustrated. Schilling makes a concerted effort to convey the wonder of the universe to his readers, and achieves this as much through his prose style as he does through his subject matter. The truly stunning photos that accompany Schilling's narrative only serve to heighten the sense of wonder.' Astronomy and Space
