Big Bang

A few weeks ago I had the privilege to attend a talk by Simon Singh at the Adler Planetarium. It was a engaging and entertaining talk. If you have the opportunity to see one of his presentations, I recommend it.

At the close of the presentation I found out that Dr. Singh was signing copies of his new book Big Bang: The Origin Of The Universe. I figured what the heck and I picked up a copy. If you have the slightest interest in the history of astronomy and cosmology then I high recommend this book. Dr. Singh has a great writing style and the book is a quick read.



  1. Hello Fernando! Do these simulations (effects) need to be physically realistic (i.e. follow the exact equations of motion)? Or are you looking for something that is just pretty?
