QB 521 .G29 2008

“If scientists can’t touch the Sun, how do they know what it’s made of?  And if we can’t see black holes, how can we be confident they exist?  Gravitational physicist David Garfinkle and his brother, science fiction writer Richard Garfinkle, tackle these questions and more in Three Steps to the Universe, a tour through some of the most complex phenomena in the cosmos and an accessible exploration of how scientists acquire knowledge about the universe through observation, indirect detection, and theory.” — Book jacket
