About This Item

London: Hutchinson, 1977. A Very Good+ clean and tight copy which has a name to front endpaper and an ink correction to a formula on one page. Dustjacket is also VG+ and is not price clipped. First UK edition. Asimov explores the implications of black holes, with lucid excursions into related questions. Was the mysterious 30-megaton blast that flattened a Siberian forest in 1908 actually a small black hole? Does matter drawn into a black hole reappear out the 'other side' as anti-matter, a sort of mirror image of the universe as we know it? Does their existence raise the possibility that matter can move faster than the speed of light? As he probes these and other questions, he takes us on a tour from the atom's innermost core to the outer reaches of the universe. 303. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
