What is the nature of the material world? How does it work? What is the universe and how was it formed? What is life? Where do we come from and how did we evolve? How and why do we think? What does it mean to be human? How do we know? There are many different versions of our creation story. This book tells the version according to modern science. It is a unique account, starting at the Big Bang and travelling right up to the emergence of humans as conscious intelligent beings, 13.8 billion years later. Chapter by chapter, it sets out the current state of scientific knowledge: the origins of space and time; energy, mass, and light; galaxies, stars, and our sun; the habitable earth, and complex life itself. Drawing together the physical and biological sciences, Baggott recounts what we currently know of our history, highlighting the questions science has yet to answer.The interaction of these different forces in the interior of the Earth is complex, and computer models are only now being developed. But it is thought ... wind. But it does and it isna#39;t. ... Its boundary is called the magnetopause, and this is where the Eartha#39;s magnetic field and the field carried by the solar wind form an equilibrium.
