A history of science's efforts to unravel the origins and mystery of atoms offers profiles of key scientists, from ancient Greece to the present day, and examines important discoveries that have unlocked the nature of the universe, the evolution of the stars, the origins of life, the role of subatomic particles, the vast potential of atomic energy, and more. By the author of Afterglow of Creation.
Every atom in our bodies has an extraordinary history. Our blood, our food, our books, our clothes - everything contains atoms forged in blistering furnaces deep inside stars, which were blown into space by those stars' cataclysmic explosions and deaths. From red giants - stars so enormous they could engulf a million suns - to supernova explosions - the most violent events in the universe - the birth of every atom was marked by cosmic events on an enormous scale, against a backdrop of unimaginable heat and cold, brightness and darkness, space and time. But how did we discover the astonishing truth about our cosmic origins? THE MAGIC FURNACE is Marcus Chown's extraordinary account of how scientists unravelled the mystery of atoms, and helped to explain the dawn of life. It is one of the greatest detective stories in the history of science. In fact, it is two puzzles intertwined, for the stars contain the key to unlocking the secret of atoms, and the atoms the solution to the secret of stars.
Shen Xin, the direct descendent of the Grand Preceptor; Qin Ao, the current emperor. When the Grand Emperor's cry rang out, Qin Ao had no choice but to hang himself. With a wave of his hand, an imperial decree was made, fulfilling the Grand Emperor's' beautiful intentions'. According to the blessing of the heavens, the emperor decreed that the direct daughter of the Shen family was a pure orchid with a pure heart. She was the epitome of a woman in the world and had entered the Eastern Palace. This is it! " The Supreme Emperor laughed. A certain emperor continued to feel helpless, and the chicken leg in a certain woman's hand fell to the ground. From then on, entering the main East Palace, watching the battles between the tigers, eating and drinking, became Shen Xin's goal. But of course, this person, Shen Xin, was also a peerless glutton. Even entering the palace wouldn't change the nature of a foodie. I would never have thought that the biggest rival in my life was none other than all kinds of delicious food.

Max Tegmark leads us on an astonishing journey through past, present, and future, and through the physics, astronomy, and mathematics that are the foundation of his work, most particularly his hypothesis that our physical reality is a mathematical structure and his theory of the ultimate multiverse. In a dazzling combination of both popular and groundbreaking science, he not only helps us grasp his often mind-boggling theories, but he also shares with us some of the often surprising triumphs and disappointments that have shaped his life as a scientist. Fascinating from first to last - here is a book for the full science-reading spectrum. Max Tegmark is author or co-author of more than 200 technical papers, twelve of which have been cited more than 500 times. He has featured in dozens of science documentaries, and his work with the SDSS collaboration on galaxy clustering shared the first prize in Science magazine's "Breakthrough of the Year: 2003". He holds a Ph.D from the University of California, Berkeley, and is a physics professor at MIT.
