God's Equation: Einstein, Relativity, and the Expanding Universe (Hardcover)

Special Order


In a work of awesome scope, Amir Aczel investigates what powers the stars on their journey to the edge of the universe. Using Einstein and his theories to explain the latest developments in cosmology, Aczel outlines the links between relativity and cosmology via Einstein's "cosmological constant." In the author's view, Einstein served as God's mouthpiece, revealing the most fundamental truths about our larger environment, truths contemporary scientists are just now confirming. This book is the first to discuss certain letters of Einstein that put a new spin on his relationship with other scientists and on his early efforts to prove his revolutionary theories.
