Astrobiology and the Search for Life in our Universe: Vol 1. Exploring the Essence of Everything

Keshav Sancredi

In the first volume of this cosmic odyssey, travel across the universe, from the stars, to the nebulae, right back to earth. This volume covers the astrophysical, astrochemical, and geological elements of our story.

Learn about our position in the universe, not just in space but across time as well. How far away are the other galaxies? How did the universe even begin? Why is there something instead of nothing?

Discover how every single atom in the universe is created, and how we are all part of the same stellar recipe. What are the processes of nuclear fusion that form everything around us? Who were the scientists that discovered these processes? How do we obtain energy from the atom?

Learn about the history of our planet, from its fiery birth, to the first signs of life, to the modern day human. How has the planet and its life changed and evolved over billions of years? How did the earth become conducive to life? How did the landmasses emerge from the depths of the oceans? What happened to the dinosaurs? How can we determine the age of a rock by analysing its radioactivity?

In short, this is the story of the essence of everything.
