Cosmology for the Curious
Explores recent developments in cosmology. Big bang, cosmic inflation, dark matter, dark energy, cosmic strings, extra dimensions, anthropic reasoning and the multiverse. Questions addressed include: How did the universe begin? How will it end? Why is it expanding? Are there parallel worlds? Because of remarkable recent progress in cosmology, we now have plausible answers to some of these questions. No background in physics or college math is assumed. Basic high school math will be used.
