What Shape Is Space?
What Shape is Space? is a question with surprisingly far-reaching implications for our understanding of the nature of reality and our place within it. The concepts involved are sophisticated, but Giles Sparrow’s style easily renders them understandable, allowing readers to get to grips with the overarching debates at the cutting edge of cosmology today. Infographics, diagrams and astronomical visualizations illustrate and clarify the various astonishing implications of a universe of infinite space.
