Space-time and beyond : toward an explanation of the unexplainable by Bob TobenNobody said that relativity theory was easy. Known for his work on loop quantum gravity theory and the pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Anaximander, Rovelli is one of our great scientific explicators. His poetic essay collection Seven Brief Lessons on Physics sold more than a million copies in English translation in and remains one of the fastest-selling science books ever. The Order of Time , a deeper, more abstruse meditation, elucidates some of the key developments in the philosophy and physics of time. Fortified with quotations from Proust, Anaximander and the Grateful Dead Rovelli has a hippyish past , the book continues a tradition of jargon-free scientific writing from Galileo to Darwin that disappeared in the academic specialisation of the last century. Clock time, said Einstein, is an illusion.
A realist takes on quantum mechanics
By Amanda Gefter. Then along came Albert Einstein, who showed that different observers can disagree about the length of objects and the timing of events. His theory of relativity unified space and time into a single entity — space-time. It meant the way we thought about the fabric of reality would never be the same again. He and a trio of colleagues are aiming to take relativity to a whole new level, and they have space-time in their sights. If this radical claim is true, it could solve a troubling paradox about black holes that has stumped physicists for decades. So what is phase space?
This book of physics/metaphysics is clear enough for the layman, very suitable for a dabbler, and interesting enough for the expert. The cartoons cutely explain.
