Chanda Prescod-Weinstein is a theoretical physicist at the University of New Hampshire, specializing in questions about the earliest parts of the universe. As a physicist, it's her job to ask deep questions about how we — and the rest of the universe — got to this moment.
Her new book,
does exactly that. It's an examination of the science that underpins our universe and how the researchers seeking to understand the universe shaping us, in turn shape the science. The Disordered Cosmos: A Journey into Dark Matter, Spacetime, and Dreams Deferred
What she wants most is for every single person to have equal access to the same night sky that has mesmerized her all these years.
