Write 5 pages with APA style on The Real Strength of The Stuff of the Universe. The book under consideration furnishes a lucid understanding as to whether this universe is expanding or rather contracting. The overall objective of the book appears to be to give the readers the necessary information that will go into achieving a relative perspective of the universe and humanity’s place in it. The essential theme of The Stuff of the Universe tends to delve into the predominant query as to what features of the universe as humanity knows it was pivotal to the emergence of life on earth and whether it was merely a coincidence or some deeper reasons that led to such a propitious alignment of the cosmic elements and constituent.
Humanity has always been curious about the fundamental questions surrounding the origins of the universe and life and this book caters to this curious and academic aspect of human interest. However, the lacuna rampant in this sphere of human interest has been that the science of cosmology has been to a great extent kept remote and away from the everyday concerns that engross mankind. In that context, The Stuff of the Universe tends to bridge the gap between the mundane concerns of life and death engaging humanity and how the cosmic elements tend to play a pivotal role in these concerns. In the book, Gribbin and Ress have tried to make the queries surrounding the origins of the universe an integral part of mainstream life. They talk about varied stages of the origins of the universe as when it was just a second old or its earlier stages. The book intends to bring the science of cosmology, out from the privileged scope of the cosmologists and astrophysicists to the realm of the general public.
The book comprises of three parts. Part I, ‘Cosmic Coincidences: How special is the Universe?’ discusses the geography of the universe and two kinds of dark matter.
