The Perfect Theory: A Century of Geniuses and the Battle over General RelativityMariner Books #ad - One of the best popular accounts of how Einstein and his followers have been trying to explain the universe for decades” Kirkus Reviews, starred review. In this sweeping narrative of science and culture, an astrophysicist brings general relativity to life through the story of the brilliant physicists, mathematicians, and astronomers who have taken up its challenge.
. Dark matter, black holes, dark energy, and string theory are all progeny of Einstein’s theory. For these scientists, the theory has been both a treasure trove and an enigma. In the midst of a momentous transformation in modern physics, as scientists look farther and more clearly into space than ever before, showing us where it started, The Perfect Theory exposes the greater relevance of general relativity, where it has led—and where it can still take us.
This has driven their work to unveil the universe’s surprising secrets even further, and many believe more wonders remain hidden within the theory’s tangle of equations, waiting to be exposed. Physicists have been exploring, debating, and questioning the general theory of relativity ever since Albert Einstein first presented it in 1915.
The Perfect Theory: A Century of Geniuses and the Battle over General Relativity #ad - Its adherents have revealed what lies at the farthest reaches of the universe, shed light on the smallest scales of existence, and explained how the fabric of reality emerges. Relativists were the target of persecution in Hitler’s Germany, hounded in Stalin’s Russia, and disdained in 1950s America. Einstein’s theory, space, which explains the relationships among gravity, and time, is possibly the most perfect intellectual achievement of modern physics—yet studying it has always been a controversial endeavor.
Still, general relativity has flourished, delivering key insights into our understanding of the origin of time and the evolution of all the stars and galaxies in the cosmos.
