The Ascent of Gravity: The Quest to Understand the Force that Explains Everything
The Ascent of Gravity: The Quest to Understand the Force that Explains Everything3.94 17 5 Author: Marcus Chown Narrator: Adjoa Andoh
Gravity, to steal the words of Winston Churchill, is 'a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma'. And penetrating that enigma promises to answer the biggest questions in science: what is space? What is time? What is the universe? And where did it all come from?
Award-winning writer Marcus Chown takes us on an unforgettable journey from the recognition of the 'force' of gravity in 1666 to the discovery of gravitational waves in 2015. And, as we stand on the brink of a seismic revolution in our worldview, he brings us up to speed on the greatest challenge ever to confront physics.
