Astrophysics for People in a Hurry book coverAstrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Friday, November 23rd @ 10:30am

What is the nature of space and time? How do people fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within them? There’s no better guide through these mind expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and bestselling author Neil deGrasse Tyson. But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in digestible chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day.
