About Book

Book Description
Cosmology—the science that aims at a comprehensive theory of creation, evolution, and present structure of the entire physical universe—is the subject of this compelling book by one of the world’s preeminent astronomers. Written especially for the general reader, Emerging Cosmology traces the history of what is perhaps the first science from the earliest surviving evidence of cosmological thought, circa 3,000 B.C.E., to the present. Robert Jastrow calls Emerging Cosmology "an eminently readable and absorbing account of the greatest revolution in human thought since the dawn of time—growing awareness that space is vast and the world of man is small. Lovell tells the story with a rare grace and insight that reveal the touch of a master on science for the layman."
