Prepare to learn everything we still don't know about our strange and mysterious universe. Humanity's understanding of the physical world is full of gaps. Not tiny little gaps you can safely ignore there are huge yawning voids in our basic notions of how the world works. PHD Comics creator Jorge Cham and particle physicist Daniel Whiteson have teamed up to explore everything we don't know about the universe: the enormous holes in our knowledge of the cosmos. Why does the universe have a speed limit? Why aren't we all made of antimatter? What (or who) is attacking Earth with tiny, superfast particles? What is dark matter and why does it keep ignoring us? This fully illustrated introduction to the biggest mysteries in physics also helpfully demystifies many complicated things we do know about, from quarks and neutrons to gravitational waves and exploding black holes. With humour and delight, Cham and Whiteson invite us to see the universe as a possibly boundless expanse of uncharted territory that's still ours to explore.

Explains a lot of the current questions in physics in a very entertaining way.
Due to the subject you should not expect a lot of answers, but a lot of things to think about.
