The God Particle: If the Universe is the Answer, what is the Question?

Naslovnica
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2006 - Broj stranica: 434
What Stephen Hawking did for cosmology, Leon Lederman does for particle physics (Dallas Morning News) in The God Particle, a funny and fascinating look at the universe from the Nobel Prize-winning physicist.

In this extraordinarily accessible and enormously witty book, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Leon Lederman guides us on a fascinating tour of the history of particle physics. The book takes us from the Greeks' earliest scientific observations through Einstein and beyond in an inspiring celebration of human curiosity. It ends with the quest for the Higgs boson, nicknamed the God Particle, which scientists hypothesize will help unlock the last secrets of the subatomic universe.

The God Particle will leave you marveling at our continuing pursuit of the infinitesimal.
