The Hole in the Universe: How Scientists Peered over the Edge of Emptiness and Found Everything

By K.C. Cole
Most of science journalist K.C. Cole’s journey into nothing is about physical nothing. The nothingness of the vacuum is the background to space and time. Cole shows how physicists’ ideas about time, space, and reality flow out of their ideas about nothing, whether vacuum or ether. She writes with a half-smile and a glint of humor in her eye, colliding metaphors like particles at Fermilab. Harvest, 2001
