Popis

A mesmerizing trip to the strange new world of white holes, from Carlo Rovelli, the bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics


Let us journey into the heart of a black hole. Let us slip beyond its boundary, the horizon, and tumble - on and on - down this crack in the universe. As we plunge, we'll see geometry fold, we'll feel the equations draw tight around us. Eventually, we'll pass it: the remains of a star, deep and dense and falling further far. And then - the bottom. Where time and space end, and the white hole is born . . .


With lightness and magic, here Carlo Rovelli traces the ongoing adventure of his own cutting-edge research, of the uncertainty and joy of going where we've not yet been. Guiding us to the edge of theory and experiment, he invites us to go beyond, to experience the fever and the disquiet of science. Here is the extraordinary life of a white hole.

Review

This festive season put White Holes in your friends’ stockings ... a miniature masterpiece by one of the most entertaining scientists on the planet… I would give this book to anyone, young and old, interested in thinking, science and literature… His book is a work of literature itself -- Robert Fox ― Evening Standard

Everyone’s talking about White Holes ― Daily Mail

Reading it is akin to the final psychedelic sequence in the movie 
2001: A Space Odyssey: you’re not sure where you’re heading but it feels bloody exciting ... If you want to remember why you once fell in love with the idea of the cosmos, or want to fall in love with that idea for the first time, then this book is for you -- Kevin Fong ― Observer

It is always worth reading Rovelli. He writes like he believes you are as learned and clever as he is. Yet he also writes with such care for your ignorance that it feels every page is urging and coaxing you ― a non-physicist ― to see what he can see -- Tom Whipple ― The Times

Possibly the most charming book by a mainstream scientist this year... Carlo Rovelli is a maestro of imaginative science writing... The book's structure and language have a charm that I found irresistible. No one else matches the way Rovelli describes the creative and imaginative thinking behind theoretical physics -- Clive Cookson ― Financial Times

Carlo Rovelli's brilliant new book White Holes asks surprising questions … A beautiful little book, by a celebrated physicist and writer, about a phenomenon that is permitted by equations but might not actually exist … What elevates this book is the author’s supernatural concision, and his artistic and philosophical elegance -- Steven Poole ― Daily Telegraph

In White Holes, Rovelli, in lyrical prose and quoting extensively from Dante’s Inferno, takes us inside a black hole, a tunnel that narrows as it lengthens. At the bottom is the star that created it ... a hallucinatory journey -- Pippa Bailey ― New Statesman
