It ends with the crowning glory of the big Hadron Collider in overdue 2008, having surveyed glossy principles of particle physics and astrophysics. to prepare the massive physique of knowledge concerned, the booklet makes use of the lifetime of Eddington and the weaving jointly of principles in cosmology as subject matters. this could offer a transparent and interesting account awarded in a historic context that leads as much as the current day.
