Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Edge of the Universe: A Voyage to the Cosmic Horizon and Beyond (Hardcover)
Halpern's book treats the reader to a banquet of the latest theories about the 'edge' of the universe. Since we do not have personal reports back from the 'edge', one is reminded of Columbus presenting his speculations before Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. What would he find when he reached the edge of the known world? If you are the adventurous type and have thirst for the latest scientific knowledge incoming from 'out there', you will love The Edge of the Universe.
