'Sit under the stars and wonder, not just at their eternal beauty and mystery, but at the courage of the men who risked their lives so we could understand them' --Daily Mail
'The best historical fiction goes beyond dates and events, giving historical figures emotions, achievements and failings. This is very much the case here' --We Love This Book

In this account I am greatly impressed by the handling of Lemaître's science: his finding of expanding solutions of Einstein's equations, his relationship with Eddington, and above all treading the dividing line between science and religion. This latter challenge is beautifully handled by the author.
The one point on which I am doubtful, but I stand to be corrected is this. I do not think Hubble and his assistants measured redshifts at the 100-inch. Hubble used Slipher's redshifts as tabulated by Stromberg. Nor do I think Hubble did very much hands on observing -- much of that was left to the former mule driver Milton Humason -- Hubble defined, Humason was the dutiful observer, Hubble reduced the observations. But these are minor quibbles. This book is a significant contribution to popular science, and a great account of how we discovered the universe
I consider my self reasonably familiar with the physics and basics of the histories; and recommend these volumes strongly for anyone who wants a very readable, engaging, correct and insightful introduction... Not least of all for those who want to think about science & religion in a more considered way than as presented by the ranting, radical atheists - and u say that as an atheists!
One can only hope that Stuart will find more material for this kind if book. It's a service to science and the public.
I have to say that I did not find this third book quite as compelling as the first two. That it is still worthy of 5 stars is indicative of the excellent quality of the trilogy as a whole. Very highly recommended.
They and the others are well written in easy to understand and entertaining language.

An interesting end to the trilogy. Perhaps a little disappointing in the lack of detail about relativity but a relaxing read.Published on 19 Jun. 2014 by Amazon Customer
