Universal brings back together the bestselling authors of The Quantum Universe to show that by asking questions about the world around us, everyone can think like a physicist and grasp the grandeur of our cosmos. Physics is about asking questions. But what are good questions? How do we understand the fundamental forces of the Universe and its remarkable uniformity? From what fridges tell us about the direction of events unfolding, to how magnets reveal spacetime, and how we know the age of things from the Atlantic Ocean, to the Earth, the Sun and the galaxies, Universal is the story of simple questions with sublime answers.

We dare to imagine a time before the Big Bang, when the entire Universe was compressed into a space smaller than an atom. And now, as Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw show, we can do more than imagine: we can understand. Over the centuries, the human urge to discover has unlocked an incredible amount of knowledge. What it reveals to us is breath-taking.

Universal takes us on an epic journey of scientific exploration and, in doing so, reveals how we can all understand some of the most fundamental questions about our Earth, Sun, Solar System and the star-filled galaxies beyond. Some of these questions - How big is our solar system? How fast is space expanding? - can be answered from your back garden; the answers to others - How big is the Universe? What is it made of? - draw on the astonishing information now being gathered by teams of astronomers operating at the frontiers of the known universe.

At the heart of all these questions - from the earliest attempts to quantify gravity, to our efforts to understand what dark matter is and what really happened at the birth of our universe - is the scientific process. Science reveals a deeper beauty, connects us to each other, to our world and to our Universe; and, by understanding the ground-breaking work of others, reaches out into the unknown. What's more, as Universal shows us, if we dare to imagine, we can all do it.
