Your Cosmic Contextprovides a framework for exploring the nature and history of our universe. Equally well suited for independent reading and study or for a one-term general education course in cosmology, this book is a guide to the key insights of scientific cosmology, including the big bang theory and exotic entities like dark matter and dark energy. It also explains how we discovered the surprising things we now know about the distant reaches of space and time, and thereby serves as one of the best available illustrations of the scientific method in action. Starting Points, The Sky We See, The Universe We Discover Through Heat and Light, The Universe We Discover Through Motion and Gravity, Clues About the Cosmos, The Fabric of Spacetime, An Expanding Universe, Photons and Electrons, The Nuclear Realm, The Big Bang Theory, History, Density, and Destiny, The Story of Structure, The Emergence of Complex Life, What Does It Mean to You?
