L'Univers à portée de main by Christophe Galfard Book Resume:

« Vous êtes à quelques milliers de kilomètres au-dessus de la surface du Soleil. Sa puissance est à couper le souffle. D’énormes boules magnétiques gonflent et se percent, éjectant vers l’espace des milliards de tonnes de matière brûlante qui transpercent votre corps éthéré. Le spectacle est extraordinaire et vous vous demandez soudain, avec une légère jalousie, ce qui rend le Soleil si spécial par rapport à la Terre. » Imaginez que vous puissiez voyager à travers les étoiles jusqu’aux confins de notre galaxie, plonger au cœur d’un trou noir, entrer dans le monde quantique... Ce livre vous offre une ébouriffante odyssée cosmique aux frontières du savoir. Paru en 2015 et devenu un classique, il a consacré Christophe Galfard comme un des meilleurs vulgarisateurs de sa génération. En voici une édition à jour des dernières découvertes et enrichie d’un cahier photos.

The Universe in Your Hand

L Univers à Portée De Main [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Universe in Your Hand by Christophe Galfard Book Resume:

"If Ms. Frizzle were a physics student of Stephen Hawking, she might have written THE UNIVERSE IN YOUR HAND, a wild tour through the reaches of time and space, from the interior of a proton to the Big Bang to the rough suburbs of a black hole. It's friendly, excitable, erudite, and cosmic." —Jordan Ellenberg, New York Times besteselling author of How Not To Be Wrong Quantum physics, black holes, string theory, the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, parallel universes: even if we are interested in these fundamental concepts of our world, their language is the language of math. Which means that despite our best intentions of finally grasping, say, Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, most of us are quickly brought up short by a snarl of nasty equations or an incomprehensible graph. Christophe Galfard's mission in life is to spread modern scientific ideas to the general public in entertaining ways. Using his considerable skills as a brilliant theoretical physicist and successful young adult author, The Universe in Your Hand employs the immediacy of simple, direct language to show us, not explain to us, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe. To understand what happens to a dying star, we are asked to picture ourselves floating in space in front of it. To get acquainted with the quantum world, we are shrunk to the size of an atom and then taken on a journey. Employing everyday similes and metaphors, addressing the reader directly, and writing stories rather than equations renders these astoundingly complex ideas in an immediate and visceral way. Utterly captivating and entirely unique, The Universe in Your Hand will find its place among other classics in the field.

A Short History of Nearly Everything

L Univers à Portée De Main [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson Book Resume:

One of the world’s most beloved and bestselling writers takes his ultimate journey -- into the most intriguing and intractable questions that science seeks to answer. In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail -- well, most of it. In In A Sunburned Country, he confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand -- and, if possible, answer -- the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds. A Short History of Nearly Everything is the record of this quest, and it is a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it. Science has never been more involving or entertaining. From the Hardcover edition.

How to Understand E=Mc2

L Univers à Portée De Main [Pdf/ePub] eBook

How to Understand E=Mc2 by Christophe Galfard Book Resume:

It is the most famous equation in the world, and yet most of us do not know its significance. Leading theoretical physicist Christophe Galfard, who was trained by Stephen Hawking, explains it all in a way that is accessible and pertinent to the world in which we live in. The beginning of the 20th century heralded a scientific revolution: what a few brilliant minds uncovered about our reality in the first twenty years has shaped the history of our species. And one of them in particular stands out: Albert Einstein, with his celebrated E=mc2. In this remarkable and insightful book, Christophe Galfard describes how E=mc2 is a direct consequence of the Theory of Special Relativity, the theory of how objects move and behave, at speeds close to the speed of light. He considers Einstein's legacy in the light of the 21st century, with fresh hindsight, and considers its impact on our vision of reality. The reader will discover that far from being just a formula, it is a brand new understanding of the nature of space and time. Throughout, Galfard takes the reader on an extremely entertaining journey, using simple, jargon-free language to help the reader gain a deeper understanding of science. With humor and patience, he guides us through the world of particles, anti-matter and much more to bring us closer to an ultimate understanding of reality as we understand it today. Do something amazing and learn a new skill thanks to the Little Ways to Live a Big Life books!

Birth of a Bridge

L Univers à Portée De Main [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Birth of a Bridge by Maylis de Kerangal Book Resume:

Coca, Southern California. A small town on a wild river, at the margins of the red-rocked desert and the forest where the last of the state's Native Americans still make their home. When Boa, the charismatic new mayor, decides to put Coca on the map, he plans a monumental new project: a six-lane bridge, two hundred metres high, designed and destined to catapult the city into the third millennium. Workers from across the globe flock to California: to earn a living, to escape their pasts, to bear witness to man's mastery of nature. But the project's majestic scope has no regard for the legacy of this ancient land, and within this monochrome Babel festers a very human cocktail of fears and passions. At once timeless and yet exquisitely of its moment, Maylis De Kerangal's multi-award-winning novel follows its broad cast of construction workers and architects, diggers and dreamers, as they navigate both the intricacies of their project and the depths of the human heart. Translated from the French by Jessica Moore

Que faisiez-vous avant le Big Bang ?

L Univers à Portée De Main [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Que faisiez-vous avant le Big Bang ? by Edgard Gunzig Book Resume:

Comment notre univers s’est-il créé ? À partir de rien ? Comme un lapin sorti d’un chapeau sans prestidigitateur ? Comme le Baron de Münchhausen s’extirpant d’un marais en tirant sur ses bottes ? Edgard Gunzig montre comment ce stratagème permet à l’univers de s’engendrer lui-même sans le fracas cataclysmique du Big Bang. De renaître de ses cendres et de se répliquer sans cesse. Notre univers actuel ne serait alors qu’un maillon de cette chaîne infinie. Il existerait depuis 13,7 milliards d’années mais aussi depuis toujours et pour toujours. Une nouvelle cosmologie qui résulte de la confrontation de la relativité générale et de la théorie quantique des champs sur la scène du vide quantique. Edgard Gunzig est professeur honoraire de physique à l’Université libre de Bruxelles.
