The Universe in Your Hand, a visual guide to the Big Bang.

Arequipa 2018 , 

Starting from Earth, those attending will discover the history of the universe: how stars and planets are born, how it is possible to calculate the distance of a far-off galaxy and how the Big Bang occurred 13,800 million years ago. Christophe Galfard (France) is a Doctor of Physics from the University of Cambridge, where he studied under Stephen Hawking. Interested in bringing science to people without specialised knowledge, he has presented television programmes and offers answers about these matters on his website. His book The Universe in Your Hand, named best science book of the year in France, condenses his efforts to explain the universe to the general public.
