Description
British mathematician and astronomer Fred Hoyle (19152001), who coined the phrase "Big Bang Theory" to describe the currently accepted explanation of the origin of the universe, did important work on the origins of stars and on the elements within stars. Yet to the general public he was better known as a prolific writer of popular science books, in which he offered his stimulating ideas on the nature of the cosmos. In this book, a compilation of popular lectures delivered in 1964, he comments on the nature of the scientific enterprise, gives his view of life on Earth from the perspective of astronomy, and speculates about the future.
