By Norman K Glendenning

In a super flash approximately fourteen billion years in the past, time and topic have been born in one quick of production. An immensely sizzling and dense universe all started its swift enlargement all over the place, growing house the place there has been no house and time the place there has been no time. within the excessive hearth simply after the start, the lightest components have been solid, later to shape primordial clouds that finally advanced into galaxies, stars, and planets. This evolution is the tale advised during this attention-grabbing booklet. Interwoven with the storyline are brief items at the pioneering women and men who printed these wonders to us.

Example text

Thomson in Scotland. The Very Large and the Very Small 37 electrons is shone onto a thin plate with two very narrow and closely spaced parallel slits, a diffraction p a t t e r n is created on a photographic emulsion plate on the other side, just as for light. How can this be? Doesn't the electron have to go through one slit or the other, but not both? If one slit is covered, indeed, the emulsion plate will register all the hits in line with the slit and source of electrons. B u t the mere presence of the other opening altogether alters the outcome; an outcome t h a t is the same as if a light source had been used instead of electrons.

Edwin Hubble discovered that the universe is expanding. The law that is named after him states that distant galaxies recede from us at a speed that is in direct proportion to their distance. This and Hubble's other discovery — that the universe is uniform and similar in every direction we look — are key observations that underpin Big Bang cosmology. Credit: Observatories of the Carnegie Institution of Washington. By measuring the Doppler shift, astronomers have learned t h a t t h e most distant visible galaxies are moving away from us at speeds exceeding 1/2 t h e speed of light, and t h a t their distances are about 13-14 billion light years.

Glendenning shifted by a precise amount according to the speed of the star relative to the E a r t h . T h e Doppler shift is a tool of great value in astronomy. 4 Expanding Universe We find them [the galaxies] smaller and fainter, in constantly increasing numbers, and we know that we are reaching into space, farther and farther, until, with the faintest nebulae that can be detected with the greatest telescopes, we arrive at the frontier of the known universe. — Edwin Hubble Edwin Hubble discovered in 1929 t h a t other galaxies are moving away from us, as if the universe were expanding.
