The Traveller's Guide

The Big Bang
by Joel Levy

The book

Imagine you could travel back in time to see the Big Bang…


This book tells you everything you would need to know about
a trip to the birth of the universe. Starting with an
explanation of which time travel devices might take you
there, you’ll travel on through a detailed look at the first few
picoseconds of expansion, the formation of atoms and
molecules, and the birth of the first stars.


Activities for your holiday could include anything from
exploring the ‘Dark Ages’, a visit to the Cosmic Renaissance,
and a rare opportunity to explore the higher dimensions in
the Planck Era.


Also included are special features such as lists of ‘What Not
To Miss At The Big Bang, ‘What to Do in a 2 Picosecond
Visit’ and ‘Echoes of the Big Bang in the Universe Today.’
