What does E=mc2 actually mean? Dr. Brian Cox and Professor Jeff Forshaw go on a journey to the frontier of twenty-first century science to unpack Einstein's famous equation. Explaining and simplifying notions of energy, mass, and light-while exploding commonly held misconceptions-they demonstrate how the structure of nature itself is contained within this equation. Along the way, we visit the site of one of the largest scientific experiments ever conducted: the now-famous Large Hadron Collider, a gigantic particle accelerator capable of re-creating conditions that existed fractions of a second after the Big Bang.A collaboration between one of the youngest professors in the United Kingdom and a distinguished popular physicist, Why Does E=mc2? is one of the most exciting and accessible explanations of the theory of relativity.

“Could do better”

This book should be severely edited to halve its size. A lot of space is taken up trying to cater for readers who have to have it explained to them , for example, that the reciprocal of 1/2 is 2. yet they are assumed... More

“Physics for all – no boffins required!”

The greatest achievement of this highly readable book, besides the not inconsiderable one of making accessible to the layperson Einstein’s theory of mass, energy, space and time, is the way the authors celebrate the... More
