Thursday's Universe is about scientists in a worlkd of glimmers, a world in which some search for answers in state-of-the-art observatories and others use only a pencil and ponder mathematical abstractions. How did the universe begin? How will it end? What types of objects populate the seemingly endless gulfs of space? These are the elemental questions that animate the struggle - through stellar births and black holes, both outward to distant quasars and inward to the heart of the atom - to decipher the messages from the deep in pursuit of the ultimate truth. Includes an Index. "This is a first-rate book. . . . If non-specilists want to know what has been discovered in astrophysics in the last two decades, and . . . what the important questions are, this is the book to read." - Jeremiah P. Ostriker, Director, Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton
