66 million years ago, a ten-mile-wide object from outer space hurtled into the Earth at incredible speed. The impact annihilated the dinosaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet. But what if this catastrophe was the sign of something greater: an opening vista onto the interconnectedness of the universe itself? This is the story of the astounding forces that underpin our existence; a horizon-expanding tour of the cosmos that unifies what we know about the universe with new thinking. From the far-flung reaches of space, the makeup of the universe and our solar system's place within it, to the mysterious and elusive stuff of dark matter and how it affects life here on Earth.

Scientists believe that the universe is mostly made up of dark matter, a mysterious substance that is different from the ordinary matter people can touch, smell, see, and interact with. Dark matter cannot be directly observed, but it can be studied by examining its effect on ordinary matter. Simplified explanations of complex scientific concepts and fascinating images will help students understand how physicists employ Kepler's laws of planetary motion, gravitational lensing, particle colliders, and other theories and tools to learn about dark matter. Informative sidebars explore related timely topics in depth, while a Further Reading section provides several resources for additional study.

Unravelling the thought of Alexander Kluge and Oskar Negt Collaborators for more than four decades, lawyer, author, filmmaker, and multimedia artist Alexander Kluge and social philosopher Oskar Negt are an exceptional duo in the history of Critical Theory precisely because their respective disciplines think so differently. Dark Matter argues that what makes their contributions to the Frankfurt School so remarkable is how they think together in spite of these differences. Kluge and Negt's "gravitational thinking" balances not only the abstractions of theory with the concreteness of the aesthetic, but also their allegiances to Frankfurt School mentors with their fascination for other German, French, and Anglo-American thinkers distinctly outside the Frankfurt tradition. At the core of all their adventures in gravitational thinking is a profound sense that the catastrophic conditions of modern life are not humankind's unalterable fate. In opposition to modernity's disastrous state of affairs, Kluge and Negt regard the huge mass of dark matter throughout the universe as the lodestar for thinking together with others, for dark matter is that absolute guarantee that happier alternatives to our calamitous world are possible. As illustrated throughout Langston's study, dark matter's promise--its critical orientation out of catastrophic modernity--finds its expression, above all, in Kluge's multimedia aesthetic.

The book takes a hard look at the current state of astronomy and details why scientists only understand 4 percent of the universe. The work also examines the intriguing paradox of why there is no proof of alien life when there are billions of planets. The search for life beyond Earth has taken a U-turn, no longer looking exclusively into outer space, but into inner space as well, looking at particles too small to see, to explain where life came from. The focus is on something called infinite density. Just as the universe expanded infinitely outward, it can also expand infinitely inward. Scientists don’t understand the process because math and physics break down. So they built the largest most complicated machine ever constructed to better understand what they cannot see. Much is expected from the Large Hadron Collider, a seventeen-mile long underground laboratory that would fit perfectly in a James Bond Movie. This volume also reviews the invention and evolution of the instrument that has told scientists more about the universe than anything else: the telescope is an unparalleled invention. Scientists have used it for the last four hundred years to search for alien life and to learn about places humans could never go. It was discovered by accident after curious children played with a set of glass lenses centuries ago. Since then, the telescope has enriched science; and after a certain comet impact, the telescope has the proven ability to actually save humanity. The body of work will also review asteroids, why they can strike without warning, including the asteroid that threatens on Friday the 13th and when NASA expects the big one to hit. Orbital debris called one of the biggest problems you never heard of will also be detailed. It is the result of humanity’s search for alien life, but has left Earth’s orbit so clogged with thousands of pieces of debris that they impede space flights, and threaten communications. These stories and more were compiled by B. E. Chenault, a former news reporter for the last twenty-five years, who now spends his time writing about areas of special interest.
