'A impressive, compelling and insightful voyage to the frontier of data from a good author with a deep understanding.' Brian Cox

What is the universe rather made from? How can we recognize? stick to the map of the invisible to discover out...

Over the final sixty years, scientists world wide have labored jointly to discover the elemental materials of subject, and the forces that govern their behaviour. the end result, to date, is the ‘Standard version’ of undemanding debris: a theoretical map of the fundamental development blocks of the universe. With the invention of the Higgs boson in 2012, the map as we all know it was once accomplished, but in addition prolonged into unusual new territory.

A Map of the Invisible is an explorer’s advisor to the traditional version and the intense nation-states of particle physics. After shrinking us right down to the scale of a sub-atomic particle, pioneering physicist Jon Butterworth takes us on board his learn vessel for a trip looking for atoms and quarks, electrons and neutrinos, and the forces that form the universe. step-by-step, discovery by way of discovery, we trip into the realm of the unseen, from the atom to black holes and darkish subject, and past, to the outer reaches of the cosmos and the frontiers of human knowledge.

Beautifully illustrated, with progressively evolving maps delivering an artistic visible word list because the trip progresses, A Map of the Invisible presents an important creation to our international, and to particle physics. it's a landmark paintings of non-fiction by way of one of many nice scientists and technology writers of today.
