"There are many different versions of our creation story. This book tells the version according to modern science. It is a unique account, starting at the Big Bang and travelling right up to the emergence of humans as conscious intelligent beings, 13.8 billion years later. Chapter by chapter, it sets out the current state of scientific knowledge: the origins of space and time; energy, mass, and light; galaxies, stars, and our sun; the habitable earth, and complex life itself. Drawing together the physical and biological sciences, Baggott recounts what we currently know of our history, highlighting the questions science has yet to answer."--

Similar scope to "How to build a habitable planet" but with focus on chemistry rather than geology. Excellent treatment of electron orbitals and implications for biochemistry.

Wonderful summary of current insights into our origins. Densely written with detailed information but well worth the effort. The level of detail would over whelm any creationist!
