A Map of the Invisible: Journeys into Particle Physics by Jon Butterworth

By Jon Butterworth

'A exceptional, compelling and insightful voyage to the frontier of information from a very good author with a deep understanding.' Brian Cox

What is the universe quite made up of? How can we comprehend? keep on with the map of the invisible to discover out...

Over the final sixty years, scientists all over the world have labored jointly to discover the elemental parts of subject, and the forces that govern their behaviour. the end result, up to now, is the ‘Standard version’ of easy debris: a theoretical map of the fundamental construction blocks of the universe. With the invention of the Higgs boson in 2012, the map as we all know it was once accomplished, but additionally prolonged into unusual new territory.

A Map of the Invisible is an explorer’s consultant to the traditional version and the extreme nation-states of particle physics. After shrinking us all the way down to the scale of a sub-atomic particle, pioneering physicist Jon Butterworth takes us on board his study vessel for a trip looking for atoms and quarks, electrons and neutrinos, and the forces that form the universe. step-by-step, discovery by means of discovery, we trip into the area of the unseen, from the atom to black holes and darkish subject, and past, to the outer reaches of the cosmos and the frontiers of human knowledge.

Beautifully illustrated, with steadily evolving maps delivering an artistic visible word list because the trip progresses, A Map of the Invisible offers a necessary creation to our international, and to particle physics. it's a landmark paintings of non-fiction by means of one of many nice scientists and technological know-how writers of today.
