Description
Physicists have been exploring, debating, and questioning the general theory of relativity ever since Albert Einstein first presented it in 1915. In this sweeping narrative of science and culture, astrophysicist Pedro Ferreira brings general relativity to life through the story of the brilliant physicists, mathematicians, and astronomers who have taken up this challenge. Over the course of a century, their studies of general relativity have delivered key insights into our understanding of the origin of time and the evolution of all the stars and galaxies in the cosmos.

"You couldn't ask for a better guide to the outer reaches of the universe and the inner workings of the minds of those who've navigated it."óMarcus du Sautoy
