內容簡介


太空離我們很遙遠?星星與我們毫無關聯?不!天文學家Kukula告訴你,浩瀚的宇宙其實與我們密切相關。

「Kukula多彩的筆為本書上色,棒極了,且啟發思考。」
-- BBC《夜空》Sky at Night雜誌/Paul Sutherland 

「精彩的一本書…,涵蓋了大量資訊,包括宇宙如何影響我們的日常生活,而且也是我們生活的一部份。」-- Erisea雜誌

宇宙的規模讓人感到困惑,距離如此之廣,時間如此之長,讓我們誤以為它與我們的日常生活無關。在本書中,英國皇家天文台台柱,天文學家Marek Kukula將告訴我們,在本質上,我們與宇宙密切相關,地球上所有的一切:包括我們腳下的土地到口袋裡的科技產品,在太空中都能找到源頭。

來自太空的岩石,呈現了地球核心的狀態;荒涼的月球表面,保留了地球最早生命形態的遠古線索;埋藏在尼羅河裡的寶藏,顯示了火星過去有水的遺跡;人體內的原子,融合在星辰的核心;用來觀察太空遙遠角落所發展的科技,如今也應用在診斷人類潛藏的致命疾病上。

這本《親密的宇宙》為我們策劃了一場旅程,讓我們看到天文學中最奇妙的現象與發現,顯示我們和宇宙的關聯是那麼緊密,也給我們許多靈感。

The scale of the cosmos can be baffling, with distances so vast and timescales to long that it's easy to dismiss them as being completely divorced from our everyday life. But in this new book Dr Marek Kukula, Public Astronomer at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, shows you the myriad ways we are intrinsically connected to the rest of the universe and how everything on Earth - from the ground beneath our feet to the technology in our pockets - has origins in space.

Discover how rocks from space reveal what conditions are like at our planet's core, how the desolate surface of the moon holds ancient clues to Earth's earliest life forms, and how buried treasure in the Nile reveals the watery past of Mars. Discover how the atoms of your own body were forged in the heart of a star, how you can see the echo of creation on your TV, and the ways in which technology developed for observing the most far-flung corners of space is now used to diagnose potentially fatal human diseases.

The Intimate Universe is a curated tour of the most fascinating phenomena and discoveries in astronomy, revealing how we are inextricably, inspirationally linked to the cosmos.
