ID: f5fbbe82e65e89727c0eb618d64e0dcb

A Harvard University professor investigates the ideas of parallel universes, warped geometry, and three-dimensional sinkholes, in a volume that explains how today's physicists are considering the prospects of additional dimensions. Reprint. 50,000 first printing. The universe has its secrets. It may even hide extra dimensions, different from anything ever imagined. A whole raft of remarkable concepts now rides atop the scientific firmament, including parallel universes, warped geometry, and three-dimensional sink-holes. We understand far more about the world than we did just a few short years ago - and yet we are more uncertain about the true nature of the universe than ever before. Have we reached a point of scientific discovery so advanced that the laws of physics as we know them are simply not enough? Will we all soon have to accept explanations that previously remained in the realm of science fiction?Lisa Randall is herself making these extraordinary breakthroughs, pushing back the boundaries of science in her research to answer some of the most fundamental questions posed by nature. For example, why is the gravitational field from the entire Earth so defenseless against the small tug of a tiny magnet? Searching for answers to such seemingly irresolvable questions has led physicists to postulate extra dimensions, the presence of which may lead to unimaginable gains in scientific understanding. In this brilliantly readable and accessible account, Randall takes us into the incredible world of warped, hidden dimensions that underpin the universe we live in, describing how we might prove their existence, while examining the questions that they still leave unanswered.Warped Passages provides an exhilarating overview that tracks the arc of discovery from early twentieth-century physics to the razors edge of todays particle physics and string theory, unweaving the current debates about relativity, quantum mechanics and gravity...

Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions - new book

ISBN: 9780060531096

ID: 978006053109

The universe has many secrets. It may hide additional dimensions of space other than the familier three we recognize. There might even be another universe adjacent to ours, invisible and unattainable . . . for now.Warped Passages is a brilliantly readable and altogether exhilarating journey that tracks the arc of discovery from early twentieth-century physics to the razor''s edge of modern scientific theory. One of the world''s leading theoretical physicists, Lisa Randall provides astonishing scientific possibilities that, until recently, were restricted to the realm of science fiction. Unraveling the twisted threads of the most current debates on relativity, quantum mechanics, and gravity, she explores some of the most fundamental questions posed by Nature—taking us into the warped, hidden dimensions underpinning the universe we live in, demystifying the science of the myriad worlds that may exist just beyond our own.
