Just Six Numbers by Martin Rees
How was it that a single 'genesis event' could create billions of galaxies, black holes, stars and planets? How did atoms assemble -- here on Earth, and perhaps on other worlds -- into living beings that were intricate enough to ponder their own origins and purpose? What are the fundamental laws that govern our universe? This book introduces to a general readership for the first time new discoveries about, and remarkable insights into, these fundamental questions.
