Human life is a staggeringly strange thing. On the surface of a ball of rock falling around a nuclear fireball in the blackness of a vacuum the laws of nature conspired to create a naked ape that can look up at the stars and wonder where it came from.
Based on the BBC Programme, Human Universe, Professor Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen present us with this study of the past, present and future of humanity. Brian Cox’s accessible approach has the ability to show how fascinating, intriguing and strange life and the Universe are.

On the surface of a ball of rock falling around a nuclear fireball in the blackness of a vacuum the laws of nature conspired to create a naked ape that can look up at the stars and wonder where it came from. Where are we? Are we alone? Who are we? Why are we here? What is the future? These are the questions this book asks and seeks to answer. Our origins, our place in the universe and our possible destiny are all carefully considered in the light of the evidence put forward by past and present scientists and theories. Astonishing photographs are accompanied by detailed explanations, graphs and formulas.

In Human Universe, Brian Cox’s love for science and the universe is palpable and contagious and makes learning about the rules that govern our world (and beyond) a journey of wonders, and we feel compelled to join in the celebration of our existence.
