If the Universe is the Answer Having brought you as a reader step by step on this journey, Lederman then opens the door to his own utterly fascinating but little-understood speciality, particle physics.
La Partícula Divina by Leon M. Lederman
Would recommend to everyone interested in world around us and development of atom theory from Greeks to modern days. I also wondered about another statement later in the book, but I forget now what it was. The book becomes very actual with the recent discovery in July of the famous Higgs boson. What are the odds of having a Nobel Prize winner to hold your hands, explain the universe to you and make you laugh at the same time?
Trivia About The God Particle Werner Heisenberg once proclaimed that all the quandaries of quantum mechanics would shrivel up when was finally explained. Lederman shared the Nobel Prize in physics for the discovery of the muon n Leon M.
As an aside, direct evidence for the neutrino related to the tau was announced by Fermilab a particle accelerator like the LHC, but in Chicago in July I understand that philosophers shouldn’t try to argue with scientific data, but they can legitimately have something to say about the interpretation of data.
I regret that I will The first part of the book really helped me to understand some things that had been outside of my education experience. The subject is fascinating.
I can only hope that it was corrected in later editions. The first part of the book really helped me to understand some things that had been outside of my education experience. Jun 13, Alex Santoyo rated it really liked it. A must read if you want to get it a bit more. Lo cual es genial.
What is implied here is that space is not merely a metric measurement of distance by time but is a “something” after all: But if you want to learn more about the improvements on this topic you should read “Beyond God Particle” …more Richard Feynman is the master of this type.
Despite some slow parts and some theore Why am I reading a twenty year old popular physics book? Not so much that it’s wrong, as that it is incomplete.
Want to Read saving…. Also in support of Einstein and counter to Lederman, John Archibald Wheeler tosses Newton’s “inertial mass” and “gravitational mass” aside, along with his theory of motion. As generally explained in the book, a neutrino ‘little neutral one’ is an elementary particle of This book provides an interesting foray into the deep mechanisms of particle physics.
I would not describe Lederman as a Feynman by any means but he is comparable to Simon Singh by way of Brain Green, though I prefer Singh’s work simply due to the absence of obnoxious puns and over the top attempts at some form of verb schtick. Why am I reading a twenty year old popular physics book? On pagethe time-energy uncertainty principle was described incorrectly: But otherwise it was entertaining and interesting. I gave this book 5 stars because it is such a great teacher of science and written so well, with great humour to boot.
This book provides an interesting foray into the deep mechanisms of particle physics. In truth, science is a much more flexible thing. This theme is traced all the way from Democritus what little we know of him to the physicists of the Enlightenment, the 19th century, and into the modern era.

Nicknamed ‘The Plumber’ due to his preference for experimentation by Murray Gell-Mann, it is clear from this book praticula Lederman’s work in the 60s and 70s is nothing short of Nobel calibre. As generally explained in the book, a neutrino ‘little neutral one’ is an elementary particle of neutral electric charge and almost 0 mass.
It probably wouldn’t be so bad if I hadn’t read million history of physics books in the past As massless particles light of various wave l Lederman provides an entertaining history of physics and much of it is accessible to the general reader.
This book is especially significant right now, inas we are about to see the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, begin operation. Leon Lederman lo ha logrado.
Take, for instance, an idea. Lederman’s Nobel Prize, inwas awarded “for the neutrino beam method and the demonstration of the doublet structure of the leptons through the discovery of the muon neutrino”, and it was shared with Schwartz and Steinberger. Lederman may be a brilliant scientist but he is a piss poor humorist. Neutrinos are extremely difficult to detect, yet more than 50 trillion of them pass through our bodies every second via the sun.
In theory, God Particle has the recipe to satisy this penchant, but I cannot get past Lederman’s hokey methods e. Interestingly, he writes that it takes a grad student at least two years “to develop quantum intuition. We also learn about how different experimental setups competed for some of the same discoveries, and the relative advantages and disadvantages of, say, electron-positron colliders compared to proton-antiproton colliders.
There were some whimsical digressions where the author played with this theme — imaginary conversations with Democritus — that I personally found to be the most dull parts of the book. Lederman is an experimental physicist so all the book has references to the most important experiments that led to the standard model.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Since so many neutrinos are predicted to exist, their combined mass may be sufficient to cause all the matter in the Universe to eventually collapse into a single point, which might then explode and create a completely new Universe.
Lists with This Book. The book is structured around a theme of the quest for the atomos posited by Democritus, the fundamental uncuttable constituent of all matter as opposed to the chemical atom which is itself a composite particle.
You get a hardware-level look at everything from Galileo’s inclined planes, to the earliest alpha-particle scattering experiments to the invention and development of cyclotrons and synchrotrons, and the different kinds of detectors used in them.
I almost took away a star because of the author’s dismissive attitude towards philosophy, which is, after all, the science of ideas. Super analogija u odlomku kao sedmi suprug Zsa Zse Gabor: So why not give philosophy a little respect?
