In A Universe from Nothing, Lawrence Krauss—one of the world's most accomplished physicists and a prominent advocate of science—explains how everything that exists came to be in the first place. Not only can something arise from nothing, Krauss notes, but something will always arise from nothing.
In his characteristic wry humor and wonderfully clear explanations, he describes the staggeringly beautiful experimental observations and mind-bending new theories that demonstrate not only can something arise from nothing, but how it happens. Using the latest findings about the triumphs and limitations of science, Krauss explains why our universe evolved—and what lies in store for it in the future.
