Such a good book It is a mix of historical and educational text on gravity from Newton s theory to present discoveries involving black holes aka the century of gravity If you like these two types of texts especially in regards to the subject matter you will most likely enjoy this book Although you will learn uite a bit about gravity black holes and the like I think it s less a text to teach and a text to provide a timeline and history However I do think it does a pretty good job of doing both I especially loved the short Deep Dive articles at the end of each chapter that helped solidify subject matters covered in the pages prior Very informative

Gravitys Century Free read ↠ 6 Ron Cowen ✓ 6 characters review Gravitys Century A sweeping account of the century of experimentation that confirmed Einstein's general theory of relativity bringing to life the science and scientists at the origins of relativity the development of radio telescopes the discovery of black holes and uasars and the still unresolved place of gravity in uantum theoryAlbert Einstein did nothing of note on May 29 1919 yet that is when he became immortal On that day astronomer Arthur Eddington and his team observed a solar eclipse and found something extraordinary gravity bends light just as Einstein predicted The finding confirmed the the. I do not read much non fiction except when it overlaps with my keenness for real science based science fiction I just love the reality based section of the genre and feel that it feeds an imagination that demands believability written into the core of any plot My own writing reflects this and so I reuire an education and sustenance to inform and allow me to weave science into my stories with books exactly like Ron Cowen s Gravity s Century Ron s writing is brilliant in explaining the science behind the strides in Physics and Astronomy since Einstein developed his Theory of Relativity in such a way that I can grasp and understand Even I only armed with Physics A Level sat far too many years ago get it and the history lesson is marvellous The lengths that scientists went to in order to prove Einstein s theory and how they solved the missing bits of their understanding ending with how to create a telescope the size of Earth in order to image a black hole Okay yes I realise that they didn t actually record an image of a black hole but rather the accretion disk spinning around it but the point being is that if you ever think that science fiction is a little staggering to believe then you need to start looking at real science Some of the sections covered I already knew about from other readings eg LIGO s proof of the existence gravity waves but this book explains everything so well and puts it all into context with the other breakthroughs in Physics in such a great way peppering the narrative with personal events to keep it from being too dry I will say that this book while pitched just right for my brain does reuire a lot concentration than normal to stay on topic and grasp the conseuences of this compelling book Despite which never before has that level of concentration been so well rewarded
