Description
During the past 13.7 (or so) billion years since the Big Bang, our universe has evolved, stars have formed and died, and our planet congealed from the matter in space; mountains, seas, and entire continents have come and gone, making humanity's place in the cosmos look relatively insignificant. But as paleontologist Neil Shubin explains, the one place where universe, solar system, and planet merge is inside your body: the origin of the moon is tied to our internal body clocks; the vast amounts of water on earth and inside all living creatures crossed the deepest stretches of space to us; strange fluctuations in the orbits within our solar system have led to our irregular ice ages; and tiny imbalances in the chaos immediately after the Big Bang can explain why matter exists at all.

"Shubin is not only a distinguished scientist, but a wonderfully lucid and elegant writer; he is an irrepressibly enthusiastic teacher ... a science writer of the first rank."—Oliver Sacks
