Cosmology and Astronomy are fascinating and complicated. The Milky way galaxy pictures taken by ‘The Hubble telescope ‘ are surreal and beautiful even if do not understand 80% of what NASA’s anchors are saying.

This short book explains the Chemistry/Physics of the universe, Big Bang and the Bark Batter. Neil deGrasse Tyson dived into the universe and made the almighty physics simple to understand by using less complicated English words, funny examples, and common life scenarios to explain concepts and decipher an equation.

Do you know that only three elements was formed in the Big Bang?

Do you know that Albert Einstein admitted he made a blunder? Lambda? Read the book to understand more.

The book is portable, not intimidating, written in readable font size and does not take bag space. Also, the cover design is cute and not too bright. The book upgrades me because it kinda ‘ makes me look smart when I reading it during a bus ride’.

Now I understand more about the basic concepts and gain new insights and revelations about what defines our planet existence. I highly recommend this book to curious minds and anyone that wants to expand their knowledge base. No regrets and forever in my library.
