Summary

The Consolations of Physics is an eloquent manifesto for physics. In an age where uncertainty and division is rife, Tim Radford, science editor of the Guardian for 25 years, turns to the wonders of the universe for consolation. 

From the launch of the Voyager spacecraft and how it furthered our understanding of planets, stars and galaxies to the planet composed entirely of diamond and graphite and the sound of a blacksmith's anvil; from the hole NASA drilled in the heavens to the discovery of the Higgs boson and the endeavours to prove the big bang, The Consolations of Physics will guide you from a tiny particle to the marvels of outer space.

loved it

A rare work where art and science collide. The result is fantastic. You don't need to know about science to appreciate this book imo
