- Most enjoyable popular level introduction to astronomy and cosmology - reads like a novel
- Written as a wonderful fantasy in which the reader meets and learns from the historical heroes of ancient and modern astronomy and cosmology
- Blends accurate science with philosophy, drama, humour and fantasy to create an exciting cosmic journey
- By the author of the successful popular science book on black holes "Einstein's Enigma - Or Black Holes in My Bubble Bath", but written on a much more basic level
Alfie is back. And so are George and other characters from the author’s previous book Einstein’s Enigma or Black Holes in My Bubble Bath. While the present book, Universe Unveiled - The Cosmos in My Bubble Bath, is completely independent, its storyline can be considered a sequel to the previous one. The scientific content spanning ancient world models to the most recent mysteries of cosmology is presented in an entirely nontechnical and descriptive style through the discussions between Alfie, the enlightened learner, and George, professor of astrophysics. Fantasies, based on these discussions that cover the scientific facts, are created by the magical bubble baths taken by Alfie.
Universe Unveiled blends accurate science with philosophy, drama, humour, and fantasy to create an exciting cosmic journey that reads like a novel and educates as it entertains.
