Abstract

This book is for anyone that is interested in the Universe. Did the Universe have a beginning, will it have an end, or has it always been the same, never changing? This is the subject of cosmology, the study of the Universe.

You do not need to have a science background, just an interest in looking up at the stars and wondering where they all came from. What evidence do we have that the Universe started from the Big Bang? Has dark matter been observed? Will we ever know what dark energy is? Are the multiverses real? Could the Universe be a hologram?

The evidence for the Standard Model of Cosmology is explained in six Cosmological Clues including the evidence for the Big Bang, dark matter and dark energy, the keystones of modern cosmology. After reading this book you will be able to tell the science from the science fiction.

Key features:
• Contains the latest evidence for the Big Bang, dark matter, and dark energy and explores exciting scientific ideas, such as inflation and multiverses.

• Provides a clear explanation of the main theories of how the Universe evolved based on key observations - the Cosmological Clues.

• Gives the reader a clear explanation of the scientific process, using cosmology as the example, and why it has been so successful in creating the technologies we have today.
