SUPERSTRINGS AND OTHER THINGS: A Guide to Physics

C. I. Calle, Author, Carlos I. Calle, Author . Institute of Physics $29.50 (647p) ISBN 978-0-7503-0707-9

Nuclear physicist Calle, NASA's principle investigator of Martian soil, traces physics from Newton's law of inertia, to the forebears of quantum mechanics, to Gell-Mann's quarks, to NASA's COBE satellite (which detected "the very remnants of creation") and all the big and small wheels en route. Calle's sizable, conversational, well-rounded history-cum-lay-guide makes of physics a fun, accessible narrative peopled by fanatics and iconoclasts. Illus. (Aug. 15)
