About this book

From Atoms to Infinity takes you on a journey from the furthest reaches of the known Universe to the tiniest particles that make up life on Earth. With their characteristic flair and unrivalled clarity, world-renowned science authors Mary and John Gribbin explore how our telescopes can see 10 billion years into the past, and why a thimble-full of a neutron star would contain as much mass as all the people on Earth put together.

John and Mary Gribbin are hugely respected popularisers of science for adults and children alike. His adult books include In Search Of Schrodinger's Cat and their Time and the Universe (Hodder) won the TES Information Book Award; Mary is the author of the hugely successful Eyewitness Guide to Time and Space (Dorling Kindersley). They live in Sussex.

Nicholas Halliday lives near Newcastle and is a designer, illustrator, actor and author. His beautifully illustrated book 21st Century Space Missions sold over 150,000 copies.
