Physicist Brian Greene, host of the acclaimed series The Elegant Universe, returns with The Fabric of the CosmosGÇöa mind-blowing, new exploration of space, time, and the very nature of reality. Discover how our perceptions have fooled us and empty space is not empty; why time may be an illusion; how a hidden realm, where the seemingly impossible is possible, lies just beneath the surface of the everyday world; and why other universesGÇöeven copies of youGÇömay exist. WHAT IS SPACE? You canGÇÖt see it, touch it, or taste it, but space is everywhere. And itGÇÖs not just an empty void. Surprising clues that space is GÇ£somethingGÇ¥ rather than GÇ£nothingGÇ¥ are overturning much of what we thought we knew about the universe, and may even hold the key to its ultimate fate. THE ILLUSION OF TIME We waste it, spend it, make it, and kill it, but what really is time? Is it like a river that flows, a clock that ticks, or nothing more than an illusion? Join a time-traveling adventure to uncover the true nature of past, present, and futureGÇöand of time itself. QUANTUM LEAP Take a wild ride into a bizarre realm where it seems the impossible is pos- sible. Objects pop in and out of existence; things can, in a sense, be in two places at once; even teleportation is real. Welcome to the weird world of quantum mechanics. On the scale of atoms and particles, the universe is nothing like it seems. UNIVERSE OR MULTIVERSE? Is our universe unique, or could it be just one of many in an endless GÇ£multiverseGÇ¥ where copies of you, me, and everyone else may exist? This radical idea is getting some serious scientific attention, and could revolutionize our picture of the cosmosGÇö and our place within it.
