An illuminating excursion into the beginnings of the universe - from the big bang to the birth of life itself.

This remarkable book presents evidence that our true origins are not just human, or even terrestrial, but actually cosmic. Origins takes us on a spellbinding tour of today's new cosmic science and its stunning insights into the formation and evolution of the universe and all its structures - galaxies and galaxy clusters, stars within galaxies, planets that orbit those stars, and different forms of life on Earth and hints of life beyond. Exploring exciting scientific breakthroughs of recent years - from the mystery of dark energy and the location of oceans in the solar system to the discover of bacteria called "extremophiles" that can survive in conditions previously considered impossible, Origins charts out ongoing quest to understand how our particular part of the universe spawned life, and if indeed life is unique to us.

We have grown used to thinking of ourselves and our origin in relation to our closest kin among the primates. But in Origins we learn to think of ourselves as kin to starlight, to the chemical elements blown into space by exploding stars billions of years ago. And we come to see this massive Earth we inhabit as one more speck of cosmic dust in the ever-expanding universe.

Drawing on the current cross-pollination among geology, biology, astrophysics, and cosmology, Origins explains the soul-stirring leaps in our understanding of the universe while capturing the importance of such extraordinary events as the first image of a galaxy being born and the exploration of Martian frontiers by Space Rover. Distilling complex science into clear and lively prose, coauthors Neil deGrasse Tyson and Donald Goldsmith conduct a galvanizing tour of the cosmos that reveals what the universe has been up to while turning part of itself into us.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist and director of New York City's Hayden Planetarium.

Donald Goldsmith is an astronomy writer in Berkley, California.
