Audiobook

15 of 15 copies available

This audiobook paints a fascinating picture of the comparative scale of phenomena in our world, from the vast to the infinitesimal. The listener is taken on a roller-coaster ride through maths, physics, chemistry, biology and technology: from zero to infinity in maths and time; from subatomic particles to galaxies; from the speed and size of the 'Big Bang' to the size and age of the universe; from the speed of light to the power of gravity; from the size of a white dwarf to that of a black hole; from a strand of DNA to the evolution of life on Earth; from the Hubble telescope to nanotechnology. 'Big Numbers' will fire the imagination of the young and old alike.
