This book is the second part of the two-volume set entitled The Big and the Small.
The first volume, Journey into the Microcosm: The Story of Elementary Particles,
dealt essentially with the small, i.e., elementary particles. The present volume
first takes the reader to the other extreme, the big or the cosmos, and then wraps
up the story by briefly describing the fascinating connecting link between the two.
In a sense, the small and the big are like the two strands of the DNA; in this case
they form the strands of the DNA of the cosmos itself. And without having some
idea of the two strands separately, the interconnection just cannot be understood.
In the earlier volumes in this series, we had glimpses of bits and pieces of the
wonderful tapestry called the cosmos. We now stand back to take a parting look
at the entire picture, its towering majesty, incomparable grandeur and
indescribable beauty—an unfathomable mystery that continues to keep scientists
engaged in the quest for the secrets unrevealed by nature.
I hope you the reader get as much enjoyment reading the book as 1 did in
writing it. All the best!
