'A amazing, compelling and insightful voyage to the frontier of data from a good author with a deep understanding.' Brian Cox

What is the universe fairly made from? How will we recognize? keep on with the map of the invisible to discover out...

Over the final sixty years, scientists world wide have labored jointly to discover the elemental ingredients of topic, and the forces that govern their behaviour. the end result, up to now, is the ‘Standard version’ of common debris: a theoretical map of the elemental development blocks of the universe. With the invention of the Higgs boson in 2012, the map as we all know it was once accomplished, but additionally prolonged into unusual new territory.

A Map of the Invisible is an explorer’s advisor to the normal version and the extreme geographical regions of particle physics. After shrinking us all the way down to the dimensions of a sub-atomic particle, pioneering physicist Jon Butterworth takes us on board his learn vessel for a trip looking for atoms and quarks, electrons and neutrinos, and the forces that form the universe. step-by-step, discovery through discovery, we trip into the area of the unseen, from the atom to black holes and darkish subject, and past, to the outer reaches of the cosmos and the frontiers of human knowledge.

Beautifully illustrated, with progressively evolving maps supplying a creative visible word list because the trip progresses, A Map of the Invisible offers a vital advent to our global, and to particle physics. it's a landmark paintings of non-fiction via one of many nice scientists and technology writers of today.
