The Missing Mass, Primordial Black Holes, and Other Dark Matters

Book - 1997
Rate this:
An astronomer at the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh, Hawkins recounts the train of 20th-century astronomy and his own thought that led him to conclude in 1993 that the 99% of the universe's mass that seems to be missing is in fact contained in tiny primordial black holes. He also looks at the political, social, and philosophical reasons that his theory has yet to be widely accepted by his colleagues. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
