Summary

The European Space Agency released a map of the afterglow of the big bang map, which contains anomalies that challenge our understanding of the universe.

This is the first book to address what will be an epoch-defining scientific paradigm shift. Will we ever know what happened before the big bang? What's at the bottom of a black hole? Are there universes beyond our own? Does time exist? Are the once immutable laws of physics changing?

Critic reviews

"It is no revelation that some data on the early Universe sit uneasily with the standard model of cosmology. But in his clued-up overview, astronomy journalist Stuart Clark's picture of the yawning gaps in our understanding of the cosmos is fuller than most." ( Nature Magazine)
