We live on a carbon planet, and we are carbon life. No other element is so central to our well-being, yet carbon atoms can also bring about disease and even death. But where does it come from? Tracing carbon back to the Big Bang, Robert Hazen explores the universe to discover the past, present, and future of this essential element of life. Along the way, Hazen climbs the cliffs of the Scottish Highlands, visits the famed volcanic crater Solfatara di Pozzuoli near Naples (where venting carbon dioxide and other noxious fumes condense into beautiful crystals), and plunges into the precious metal mines of Namibia, journeying toward earth's mysterious core in search of undocumented carbon structures.
