  • ""What remains when you take all the matter away? Can empty space--a void--exist? Frank Close explores the science and the history of the elusive void : from Aristotle, who insisted that the vacuum was impossible, to our very latest discoveries and why they can tell us extraordinary things about the cosmos."--P.

  • "'Nature abhors a vacuum', or so it was believed. From early efforts to create a perfect vacuum, the exploration of nothingness has driven scientists towards a deeper understanding of the nature of matter, space and time. In this book, particle physicist and writer Frank Close tells the story of scientists' efforts to understand the Void. It is an account that begins with the ancient Greek philosophers and takes us through to the frontiers of modern science; from the absolute zero of temperature to the unimaginable heat of the Big Bang; from quantum uncertainty and curled up dimensions to the vastness of the cosmos. We are discovering that by seeking to understand the nature of the Void, we are confronting the enigma of why anything should exist at all."
