    We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe af Jorge Cham (themulhern)
    themulhern: Both have a lightish treatment of similar topics. I think "We Have no Idea" has more verve, though.

What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? There’s no better guide through these mind-expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and best-selling author Neil deGrasse Tyson.

But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in tasty chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day. ( )

Great book on the Cosmos.. gets a little deep in the physics but has a great ending which really gets you thinking about the universe and where we fit into it.. ( )

"The cosmic perspective" is indeed for everyone and Tyson delivers an amazing, educational, entertaining, and moving crash course in Astrophysics perfect for the hurried and non-hurried among us. The unassuming tiny tome offers fascinating data and clear and concise explanations that are not at all intimidating. The author even makes an excellent case for why it is so important for everyone to have an understanding of the cosmos.

"People who believe they are ignorant of nothing have neither looked for, nor stumbled upon, the boundary between what is known and unknown in the universe." p 33

"Now imagine a world in which everyone, but especially people with power and influence, holds an expanded view of our place in the cosmos. With that perspective, our problems would shrink-- or never arise at all-- and we could celebrate our earthly differences while shunning the behavior of our predecessors who slaughtered one another because of them." p 197

"In other words, after the laws of physics, everything else is opinion." p 45

"Because light takes time to reach us from distant places in the universe, if we look out in deep space we actually see eons back in time. So if the intelligent inhabitants of a galaxy far, far away were to measure the temperature of the cosmic background radiation at the moment captured by our gaze, they should get a reading higher than 2.7 degrees, because they are living in a younger, smaller, hotter universe than we are." p 56

"[C]osmic dark matter has about six times the total gravity of all visible matter." p 82

"What we know is that the matter we have come to love in the universe-- the stuff of stars, planets, and life-- is only a light frosting on the cosmic cake, modest buoys afloat in a vast cosmic ocean of something that looks like nothing." p 85

"Looking more closely at Earth's atmospheric fingerprints, human biomarkers will also include sulfuric, carbonic, and nitric acids, and other components of smog from the burning of fossil fuels. If the curious aliens happen to be socially, culturally, and technologically more advanced than we are, then they will surely interpret these biomarkers as convincing evidence for the absence of intelligent life on Earth." p 192

"We are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out-- and we have only just begun." p 33

Mein Sohn hat dieses Buch geliebt, und deshalb habe ich ihm den Gefallen getan, es auch zu lesen (zumal es auch meiner etwas mauen Lesestatistik etwas auf die Beine geholfen hat). Ich muss aber sagen, dass ich eher unterwältigt war - zu typisch amerikanisch in jeder Hinsicht.
Typisch amerikanisch in seiner über-euphorischen (Natur-)Wissenschaftsgläubigkeit (nicht, dass ich etwas gegen die Wissenschaften hätte, ganz im Gegenteil, aber das war doch etwas "over the top", um nicht zu sagen kindisch.)
Typisch amerikanisch (oder anglo-amerikanisch) in seinem Religions- und Geisteswissenschafts-Bashing. An einer Stelle sagt er "In other words, after the laws of physics, everything else is opinion." Das erinnert doch schwer an das Zitat von Rutherford "All science is either physics or stamp collecting." Und an anderer Stelle wirft er einem Psychologieprofessor vor "His ego was unjustifiably big to begin with, inflated by delusions of significance", weil dieser untersuchen wollte, inwieweit eine Kosmo-Show Menschen sich klein und unbedeutend fühlen lässt.
