Astrophysics for People in a Hurry

by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Wednesday, September 18 from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.

Books are available at both library branches.

Adults ages 18 and up.

What is the nature of space and time?  How do we fit within the universe?  How does the universe fit within us?  There's no better guide through these mind-expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and bestselling author Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Today, few of us have time to comtemplate the cosmos, so Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with wit and in digestible chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day.  While waiting for your morning coffee to brew, or while waiting for the bus, the train, or the plane to arrive.  Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will reveal just what you need to be fluent and ready for the next cosmic headlines: from the Big Bang to black holes; quarks to quantum mechanics; the search for planets to the search for life in the universe.
