    A fascinating and at times, personal, journey through time, space, and history by the author as she explores not the just the universe as we know it, but also the various stories of people throughout history who have placed the importance of science and other people above their own The book is not only about Possible Worlds but also, like the first Cosmos

    Our universe began some 14 billion years ago when matter, energy, time, and space burst forth.And the darkness was cold, and the light was hot, and the union of these extremes gave shape to matter and there was structure.And there were great stars hundreds of times the mass of our sun And these stars exploded, sending oxygen and carbon to the worlds to come and ado
