There are many popular and excellent science books that present various aspects of science. However, this book follows a narrow scientific pathway from the Big Bang to mankind, and depicts the causal relationship between each step and the next. The science covered will be enough to satisfy most readers. Many important areas of science are dealt with, and these include cosmology, particle physics, atomic physics, galaxy and star formation, planet formation and aspects of evolution — all described in narrative form.

The three greatest scientific mysteries, which remain poorly understood, are the origin of the universe, the origin of life and the development of consciousness. This book describes the processes preceding the Big Bang, the creation of matter, the concentration of that matter into stars and planets, the development of simple life forms and the theory of evolution that has given higher life forms, including mankind.
Many important areas of science are dealt with, and these include cosmology, particle physics, atomic physics, galaxy and star formation, planet formation and aspects of evolution. The necessary science is described in a narrative form that general-interest readers should understand, without the use of equations or formulae. Beyond those trees, some miles away to the south, is London, where my daughter and her family live; they are due to visit next month and I look forward to seeing them all again….

The contents of the Universe show a hierarchical structure, consisting of a sequence of entities of ever-decreasing mass, the formation of which is one of the essential topics of this book. This structure is displayed in Figure 9.
The following sections are included: What Constitutes the Missing Mass? How Do Galaxies Form? What Problems Remain? The following sections are included: The Cenozoic Era I am idly staring out of my study window again and I spot our local squirrel — we call him Claude. He has a drink from the bowl of water put there for the birds and then smartly shins up the nearby tree.
Since a local restaurant recently introduced squirrel into its menu, my wife and I are always a little anxious if we do not see Claude for two or three days. He is a grey squirrel and, by and large, they get a poor press. Our British native red squirrels are now confined to a few isolated regions of the country where they are free of competition from their grey North American cousins.
Do we have nationalism with squirrels, I wonder? After all, the grey squirrels are better able to compete under British conditions so why should Darwin's evolutionary theory not apply to squirrels? Still, I do admit, the red squirrels look cute and I wish them well…. The following sections are included: Index.
