We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe by Jorge Cham

Into the Wild

Read We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe Online Free - Prepare to learn everything we still don't know about our strange, mostly mysterious universe.

PHD Comics creator Jorge Cham and particle physicist Daniel Whiteson have teamed up to spelunk through the enormous gaps in our cosmological knowledge, armed with their popular infographics, cartoons, and unusually entertaining and lucid explanations of science.

In We Have No Idea, they explore the biggest unknowns in the universe, why these things are still mysteries, and what a lot of smart people are doing to figure out the answers (or at least ask the right questions). While they're at it, they helpfully demystify many complicated things we do know about, from quarks and neutrinos to gravitational waves and exploding black holes. With equal doses of humor and delight, they invite us to see the universe as a vast expanse of mostly uncharted territory that's still ours to explore.
This entertaining illustrated science primer is the perfect book for anyone who's curious about all the big questions physicists are still trying to answer."

This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews. 2.5/5 The reason I picked this book up was because it reminded me of A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. That book was about the known universe and the scientists behind it. Literally, chock full of hilarious anecdotes about t...

If you like your physics with a side of dad-joke level puns, then this is totally the book for you. It's a fun romp through some of the wilder aspects of physics, though if you've got a fairly high level of understanding to start with then this book might feel like something of a review. For thos...

This book is a good complement to de book What We Cannot Know by Marcus du Sautoy,because is not centered so much in the phylosofical side as in physics and cosmology. We are living a golden age of science popularization with a lot of good books abot disparate subjects. This one is a example,is a b...

A very intriguing title, certainly and I found this to be humorous at times, but I don't know enough about quantam physics, etc., to tell the real from the jokes. For example, most of the footnote explanations are jokes themselves, but I'm not sure about the footnote 67 on page 156: "Muons and ta...

Pretty good popular science Worth reading. Maybe too much focus on cosmology for my taste, but we can not have everything. 3 more words needed because of this stupid app.

A very lighthearted approach to some heavy questions and it's certainly solves none of them. I enjoyed the weird jokes and the fool proof examples make it a bit easier to understand the complicated science underneath. A good book to start your science quest with!

covers topics in physics and cosmology where we have a profound ignorance of what is going on. Right now we can't answer questions like what is the stuff that makes up 95% of the universe, Why do we have charmed, Strange, top and bottom quarks which don't seem to have any purpose as far as we (or...
