內容簡介


「大是多大?小又是多小?身為一個太空人和探險家,我很開心有人可以用我可以了解的方式,來解釋宇宙間最難懂的部分。看這本書的時候,每翻一頁都讓我想要驚呼『Eureka!』」─Cady Coleman,PhD,前美國太空總署太空人

「阿坎德和瓦茨克兩人創造了一個大師級作品,想要欣賞太空從小到大的豐富內涵的人都必須讀的一本書」─Avi Loeb,哈佛天文學系主任


金柏莉‧阿坎德和梅根‧瓦茨克兩人再次聯手,帶著讀者走上一趟解釋宇宙間時間、溫度、大小、距離等的視覺之旅,用精彩的插圖取代艱澀的說明,宇宙的科學不再是遙不可及的困難,也可以這樣簡單好懂。

從宇宙間某個原子中最小的分子,到宇宙中最大的銀河系,從草叢生長的速度,到肉眼難以看見的光速,本書用清楚的圖說來介紹宇宙間的各種度良系統,每一章都有不同主題,從小到大說明讓讀者更清楚其差距。

阿坎德和瓦茨克都任職於NASA錢德拉X射線天文台,兩人以向大眾分享太空相關科學為目的,已出版了數本科普書。


In the tradition of illustrated science bestsellers, like Thing Explainer and harkening back to the classic film The Powers of Ten, this unique, fully-illustrated, four-color book explores and visualizes the concept of scale in our universe.

In Magnitude, Kimberly Arcand and Megan Watzke take us on an expansive journey to the limits of size, mass, distance, time, temperature in our universe, from the tiniest particle within the structure of an atom to the most massive galaxy in the universe; from the speed at which grass grows (about 2 to 6 inches a month) to the speed of light. Fully-illustrated with four-color drawings and infographics throughout and organized into sections including Size and Amount (Distance, Area, Volume, Mass, Time, Temperature), Motion and Rate (Speed, Acceleration, Density, Rotation), and Phenomena and Processes (Energy, Pressure, Sound, Wind, Computation), Magnitude shows us the scale of our world in a clear, visual way that our relatively medium-sized human brains can easily understand.
