It is a very strange Universe out there...

Modern cosmology and Physics have taken some strange turns in recent decades. When one considers, as the title of this book states, that only about 4% of matter in the Universe is understood and 'visible' to us, one realizes how little we still know about our Universe. Richard Panek takes us on a tour of the events and findings leading to this humbling realization. I enjoyed the way he not only explained the scientific discoveries, but also portrayed the characters involved in these discoveries in a very colorful and vivid account. The Universe is full of surprises, and if you have an interest in Astronomy, Cosmology and Physics, then I'm sure you will enjoy this book greatly. Highly recommended. link
