Designed for the layman as well as the scientist, this witty account of the physical universe illuminates fundamental concepts of Western science. The author transforms everyday experiences into venues of cosmic enlightenment as he probes the physical universe and astronomy. In particular, he explains planetary orbits and stellar evolution, the conservation of energy, the electromagnetic spectrum, gravity and thermodynamics, the periodic table of the elements, and the philosophy of science. These complex concepts are described in terms of everyday items, in order to etch scientific ideas into the reader's mind.
