His astronomical observations with the telescope shattered the idea... more...

  • The Essential Darwinby John Gribbin; Mary Gribbin

In his youth, he seemed likely to become a wastrel, yet he became a hard-working and renowned... more...

  • In Search of Schrodinger's Catby John Gribbin

    Random House Publishing Group 2011; US$ 18.00

    Quantum theory is so shocking that Einstein could not bring himself to accept it. It is so important that it provides the fundamental underpinning of all modern sciences. Without it, we'd have no nuclear power or nuclear weapons, no TV, no computers, no science of molecular biology, no understanding of DNA, no genetic engineering. In Search of Schrodinger's... more...

  • Erwin Schrodinger and the Quantum Revolutionby John Gribbin

    Erwin Schrödinger was an Austrian physicist famous for his contribution to quantum physics.

  • The Fellowshipby John Gribbin

    Penguin Books Ltd 2006; Not Available

    From the bestselling author of Science: A History comes the enthralling story of a revolution that shook the world.

  • The Reason Whyby John Gribbin

    Penguin Books Ltd 2011; Not Available

    Does one planet really matter among the immensity of the Cosmos? John Gribbin is here to persuade us that it does. In this ground-breaking and provocative new book Gribbin argues that we owe our existence to the impact of a 'supercomet' with Venus 600 million years ago. But this is only part of the story, just one of the astronomical and geophysical... more...

  • In Search of the Multiverseby John Gribbin

    Penguin Books Ltd 2009; Not Available

    We once had to abandon the idea of earth being at the centre of the universe.

In Search of the Multiverse takes us on an extraordinary journey, examining the most fundamental questions in science. What are the boundaries of our... more...
