Oberlin College Assistant Professor of Physics Jillian Scudder will be reading from her new popular astronomy book Astroquizzical: A curious journey through our cosmic family tree (Icon Books, 2018).
"How did the Earth get to be the way it is? Just like all of us, it's a product of its ancestors."
Based around readers’ questions from the author's popular blog Astroquizzical, the book provides a quirky layperson’s guide to how things work in the Universe and why things are the way they are, from shooting stars on Earth, to black holes, to entire galaxies.
For anyone interested in the 'big picture' of how the cosmos functions and how it is all connected, Jillian Scudder is the perfect guide.
