A non-technical read of the universe that flows from the earliest moments of time (10 negative 43 seconds) to our current ever-expanding universe: energy, atoms, matter, chemicals, complex molecules, planetary/star/solar system/galaxy formation, etc. are clearly presented. Answers and questions abound. Within the last 7 years we have expounded greatly on what was published here. However, this is a great place to start in any cosmological search. And a handful of times I was left flabbergasted.
The kicker is that it is written by the famed Neil deGrasse Tyson.
