Travel at light-speed is impossible for objects having mass. Not so much that it’s wrong, as that it is incomplete. But this attitude is so common that I let it go unpunished. There’s motion, but it’s created by “rolling down hill” so to say, and not by any magical pulling and resistance forces. Want to Read saving…. To end on a positive note, I did want to mention that Leon Lederman is a very entertaining personality and his personality comes through vividly in his writing.
La Partícula Divina by Leon M. Lederman
Prior to that, it was sheer bliss reading about the underpinnings of the universe. So why not give philosophy a little respect? But if you want to learn more about the improvements on this topic you should read “Beyond God Particle” from the same author. For this reason, I did not focus so much on leserman physics and cosmology in the book, and read more for the history and engineering.
This made some parts of the book seem like a very slow read. Leon Lederman lo ha logrado. I got a bit bogged down in the detailed quark chapters, and it was a bummer to be reading something written in the early particul, because it obviously left out particuka from then until the present, which ended the book with a lot of questions.
Mixed throughout the book are also the descriptions of lots of personalities in Physics which I find quite interesting, showing the human side of Physics personal gripes, competition, late night trips to McDonald’s between experiments, etc. It probably wouldn’t be so bad if I hadn’t read million history of physics books in the past Science is not about status quo. I found particle physics fascinating—the universe as creative force—but as the book went on I found my lack of foundational science to be a real hindrance in understanding.
On the other hand, there were also fascinating stories about famous scientists that I dkvina not heard before, and even a few lesser-known scientists that I was introduced to for the first time, like Boscovich.
This book is fairly dense in terms of physics technicalities, but one can still appreciate the humorous anecdotes throughout. I divna not describe Lederman as a Feynman by any means but he is comparable to Simon Singh by way of Brain Green, though I prefer Singh’s work simply due to the absence of obnoxious puns and over the top attempts divinna some form of verb schtick.
A must read if you want to get it a bit more. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Super analogija u odlomku kao sedmi suprug Zsa Zse Gabor: These are leedrman to be the “flavours” of a neutrino. I was wondering if someone on here could recommend a similar book, with details on recent developments in the field?
Is the Higgs field the new aether Lederman asks? No trivia or quizzes yet. If there are four forces in nature, might there be two underlying patterns to them as one of the Greeks Empledocles – love and hate, harmony and discord? That should read “uncertainty of Es como que te atrapa.
In truth, science is a much more flexible thing. It makes the book more digestible amongst the complex concepts you learn. Lederman may be a brilliant scientist but he is a piss poor humorist. Lederman conveys with excitement and humor what it is like to be one of two or three lededman in the world who are pushing the frontiers of scientific knowledge in a particular specialized area.

Provokingly, he states that mass, therefore, may not be a fundamental attribute of matter, “but a property acquired by the interaction of particles and their environment. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
At the time this was written, the Superconducting Supercollider project had lederma yet been cancelled, the Large Hadron Collider had not yet been announced, the tau particle had not been discovered, the accelerating expansion of the universe and dark energy was unknown, and the age of the universe was only known to be “about 15 billion years”.
And does gravity not exhibit the oscillation between the attractive and repulsive forces that occur on the atomic scale? View all 4 comments. I come from a biochemistry background and Lederman’s writing style seems to simplify a lot of the “physics-y stuff. This is one of the sharpest science books for the general reader ever published. As an aside, direct psrticula for the neutrino related to the tau was announced by Fermilab a particle accelerator like the LHC, but in Chicago in July Lederman does continuously say that the metaphors and explanations don’t do the mathematical theory justice, but at least gives the reader enough knowledge to continue their learning to the next stage.
