EVENT DETAILS
Thumbnail for - Neil Shubin:  The Universe Within

In his new book, popular science writer Neil Shubin explains "...how humans bear the markings of cosmic phenomena; [or] as he puts it, 'Written inside us is the birth of the stars.'"  (- Publisher's Weekly)

The Universe Within:  Discovering the Common History of Rocks, Planets, and People takes a billions-years look at how thousands of years of human development is connected to the creation of our physical world, exploring everything to why our eyes function the way they do to why our bodies are shaped as they are.  Shubin's work is no less than the result of his search for a "sublimely beautiful truth" -- something we all could use a little delve into now and again.
