Our true origins are not just human, or even terrestrial, but in fact cosmic. Drawing on recent scientific breakthroughs and the current cross-pollination among geology, biology, astrophysics, and cosmology Origins explains the soul-stirring leaps in our understanding of the cosmos. From the first image of a galaxy birth to Spirit Rover`s exploration of Mars, to the discovery of water on one of Jupiter`s moons, coauthors Neil deGrasse Tyson and Donald Goldsmith conduct a galvanising tour of the cosmos with clarity and exuberance.
