Using data from very recent scientific discoveries, the author reveals the six numbers upon which all physical reality rests, from atomic structure to human tissue.
Gravity's fatal attraction : black holes in the universe by Mitchell C Begelman ( Book )
18 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 1,575 libraries worldwide
Black holes are an extraordinary construct, proposed by theorists and embraced by the popular imagination. They represent a mysterious, unexplored frontier where time and space behave in bizarre ways. In essence, black holes are an idea written, spoken, and thought about, but a fundamental question has always remained: Do black holes exist? Astrophysicists Mitchell Begelman and Martin Rees answer this question with a resounding yes. Central participants in the quest to understand black holes, they describe the great technological advances that have allowed scientists to gather compelling evidence that black holes are a real and ubiquitous phenomenon. These points where gravity is infinitely strong, "swallowing" everything in its vicinity, could number in the millions in every galaxy, as the remnants of ordinary stars several times more massive than the Sun. More remarkably, discoveries made early in 1995 supply conclusive evidence that giant black holes, perhaps weighing as much as billions of suns, are lurking at the very center of most galaxies. Gravity's Fatal Attraction: Black Holes in the Universe tracks the observations and accidents through which scientists discovered black holes and the related phenomena they power, such as quasars and dazzling jets a million light-years long. Scientists are just beginning to understand the exotic ways these invisible objects manifest themselves, and how they relate to other structures in the cosmos. Yet, new questions continue to arise: Could microscopic holes exist, the size of an atomic nucleus but the weight of a mountain? As the Universe evolves, could it be the ultimate fate of all matter to be "swallowed" by black holes? As Begelman and Rees point out, the cosmic "fireworks" scientists are investigating may prove most valuable as stepping-stones to even more profound knowledge. The quest to find black holes and related structures, and to understand the mysterious work of gravity within them, could ultimately confirm or refute our theories describing the physical laws of the Universe, and even help us understand its origins and final fate.
Before the beginning : our universe and others by Martin J Rees ( Book )
20 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and Finnish and held by 1,418 libraries worldwide
The author, Britain's Astronomer Royal, posits that our universe "is just one element in a cosmic archipelago where impassable barriers prohibit communication between the islands...[but where] our universe contains creatures able to observe it."--Jacket.
Our final hour : a scientist's warning : how terror, error, and environmental disaster threaten humankind's future in this century on earth and beyond by Martin J Rees ( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,398 libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Bolstered by unassailable science and delivered in eloquent style, Our Final Hour's provocative argument that humanity has a mere 5050 chance of surviving the next century has struck a chord with readers, reviewers, and opinion-makers everywhere. Rees's vision of our immediate future is both a work of stunning scientific originality and a humanistic clarion call on behalf of the future of life.

Our cosmic habitat by Martin J Rees ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and German and held by 1,097 libraries worldwide
Rees challenges the reader to imagine a cosmos different from our own. He considers our universe one among many and the only one to harbor life. He explores what makes this universe hospitable to life and takes the reader through time and space to find the proof.

New perspectives in astrophysical cosmology by Martin J Rees ( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 472 libraries worldwide
"This volume presents a synthesis of our understanding of modern cosmology. In recent years, observational cosmology has made remarkable advances, bringing into sharper focus a new set of fundamental questions that Professor Rees addresses in this book. Why is the universe expanding the way it is? What were the 'seeds' that caused galaxies, clusters and superclusters to form? What is the nature of 'dark matter'? What happened in the very early universe?"--Jacket.

Astronome et astrophysicien, l'auteur met en garde sur le risque de l'humanité de s'autodétruire mais aussi d'entraîner dans sa chute celle du cosmos lui-même. Il détaille les dangers qui menacent le monde : virus artificiels, cyberterrorisme, erreurs en matière d'expériences biologiques, collisions d'atomes incontrôlées en laboratoires, sans oublier les traitements infligés à l'environnement.
