For centuries, it was assumed that our universe was static. In the late 1920s, astronomers defeated this assumption with a startling new discovery. From Earth, the light of distant galaxies appeared to be red, meaning that those galaxies were receding from us. This led to the revolutionary realization that the universe is expanding. The Red Limit is the tale of this discovery, its ramifications, and the passionately competitive astronomers who charted the past, present, and future of the cosmos.

David Harland describes the historical development of particle physics, and explains, in a non-mathematical way, how particle physics has influenced the structure of the Universe from the very beginning of time. He demonstrates the close links between discoveries in particle physics and in cosmology up to the present. He describes how our understanding of the Universe has developed from the discovery that the Universe is expanding, to the idea that all matter originated in a hot, Big Bang, then explains the many subtle improvements to the basic theory that have been necessary to understand how the very smallest particles and earliest structures (the 'microscale') in the Universe evolved to produce the Universe as it is now (the 'macroscale'). The author also describes how scientists are attempting to develop a 'Theory of Everything' that would explain how an instant after the Big Bang a single primordial force was transformed into the four forces of nature that we observe today, which hitherto were believed to be 'fundamental'.

Featuring a wealth of incredible astronomical photographs, Space takes us on an imaginary journey that starts from a launchpad on Earth. From there, we go in toward the center of our Solar System to see the inner planets and the Sun. We then fly outward, past the outer planets and on to the fringes of the Solar System. After a brief pause to look back toward Earth, we pass into interstellar space to look at some of the trillion stars that make up the Milky Way. Moving further, we see other galaxies, some of them the scenes of extremely violent activity as material at their centers spirals into black holes. Finally, we look at the very edges of the visible Universe and in doing so look back to a time soon after the Big Bang. The pictures taken of objects at these great distances tell us about how the Universe formed and how it might end. All the phenomena encountered throughout this journey are explained in amazing detail, resulting in an encyclopedic account of the Universe and our exploration of it.
