Where did the Universe come from; and when and how might it end? From ancient Egyptian and Greek conceptions of the universe to the latest cosmological theories and research conducted using the Large Hadron Collider, Clegg traces humanity's development of new ways to observe the skies and to account for the existence of everything. He also delves into the mysteries of supernovae, black holes, quasars, pulsars and the 'dark matter' that might explain the odd behaviour of galaxies.
