We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe
by Jorge Chan and Daniel Whiteson
PHD Comics creator Jorge Cham and particle physicist Daniel Whiteson
have teamed up to spelunk through the enormous gaps in our cosmological
knowledge, armed with their popular infographics, cartoons, and
unusually entertaining and lucid explanations of science.
In We Have No Idea, they explore the biggest unknowns in the universe, why these things are still mysteries, and what a lot of smart people are doing to figure out the answers (or at least ask the right questions). While they're at it, they helpfully demystify many complicated things we do know about, from quarks and neutrinos to gravitational waves and exploding black holes. With equal doses of humor and delight, they invite us to see the universe as a vast expanse of mostly uncharted territory that's still ours to explore.
This entertaining illustrated science primer is the perfect book for anyone who's curious about all the big questions physicists are still trying to answer.
