Praise for Marcus Chown:
“One of Britain’s most respected science writers. He uniquely combines a deep understanding of science and an ability to communicate the most esoteric ideas to the ordinary person in the street.” —SIMON SINGH, author of Fermat’s Last Theorem and Big Bang

"One of the premier writers on astronomy and physics working today—highly knowledgeable, and with a flair for presenting difficult concepts in a clear and entertaining fashion." —Michael Lemonick, author of Echo of the Big Bang and Senior Science Writer emeritus, Time magazine
