A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather Than Nothing

Where did the universe emerge from, what was there before it and what lies in the future are among the timeless questions that Lawrence Krauss attempts to answer in her now widely popular lecture on YouTube that attracted close to a million viewers. While these questions lie in the center of philosophical and religious debates about the existence of God, they are also the apparent counterargument for everyone who questions the need for God. However, Krauss argues that scientists have always focused on other pressing issues, such as understanding how the universe actually functions, as those findings ultimately helped them improve the quality of our lives.

In his book, Krauss, who is a theoretical physicist by profession, explains how path breaking scientific advances have turned the most basic philosophical questions on their heads. He uses modern science to address the question of why there is something rather than nothing and surprisingly the answers seem fascinating. The superb experimental observations described in A Universe from Nothing suggest that not only can something arise from nothing, but something always does arise from nothing.

With his characteristic dry humour and clear explanations, Krauss guides up back to the beginning of the beginning, using the most recent evidences to explain how our universe evolved and how it is going to end. A Universe from Nothing instigates, challenges and amuses readers as it takes a look at the fundamental underpinnings of existence in a completely new way. It also shows us how our universe will be vastly different in the future from the way it is today, implying different ways in which all these changes affect our lives in the present.
