A wonderful and diverting look at the big questions of life and the Universe.

What happens when you die?

According to one prominent physicist, you will be instantaneously resurrected - despite trillions upon trillions of years having passed - in the dying days of the Universe. Stretching before you will be a subjective eternity of existence: the never-ending days of being dead .

This is just one of the strange but wonderful scientific ideas, each from the mind of one of the world's most daring and imaginative scientists - in Marcus Chown's superbly readable new book. Learn how the big bang may have been spawned by a collision between 'island universes'; where we came from; will we ever find ET and many more.
