Origins : Fourteen Billion Years of Cosmic Evolution by Neil deGrasse Tyson

I started reading “Origins : Fourteen Billion Years of Cosmic Evolution” by Neil deGrasse Tyson a week ago, and just completed the fourth chapter. Since the beginning, I knew I wouldn’t understand the jargons used by the author and at times I feel like I should stop reading and start searching for the things that he has mentioned in the book. And each jargon is a separate wiki page of its own and if I would do that I would never be able to complete the book.


“The Dark Matter” was the chapter I was able to comprehend the most and it felt awesome (though I am in no shape to write about it). The thing is that the brightest minds of all have very little idea of what actually happened in the very beginning when there was nothing(with certainty), so all of them have made several assumptions. This book shed some light on those assumptions, but to understand it to the fullest I need a person who could explain the book further since there is a story behind each and every jargon and they are is quite fascinating.

Nonetheless, I like the book and I will continue it further.
