If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you must have seen the daily NASA pics which I share in the morning. They are pretty awesome and if you haven’t seen any, click here to go to the Facebook album. Like everyone else, I also have the curiosity for knowing what’s out there beyond our world. The cosmos and the galaxies fascinated me since childhood.
I first heard about Neil deGrasse Tyson when I was looking for the meaning and scientific explanation of the movie “Interstellar” which came out a couple of years ago. I have watched a couple of his videos on YouTube explaining Singularity, Blackholes, and Wormholes.
A couple of days ago I got know about the books that he has written and I thought it would be really cool to know our origin stories. Yes, as a Muslim we already have an origin story but it’s nice to know what science has to say about our origin story. So I picked up the book, “Origin: Fourteen Billion Years of Cosmic Evolution” by Neil deGrasse Tyson and finished its first chapter. Until now it’s all about the particles, a whole bunch of particles whose names I have already started forgetting. Nevertheless, it’s just the beginning and I am pretty excited to read the rest of the book. Stay tuned for more updates.
