Astronomer Royal Martin Rees shows how the behaviour and origins of the universe can be explained by just six did a single.

Shelves: strongly-recommended , multiverse , science , transcendent-experiences [Original review, November ] This book blew me away I hadn't been paying attention, and had missed a scientific revolution that had happened right under my nose! To cut to the chase: either someone created the Universe expressly to make it suitable for living beings, or there are lots of universes, and we just happen to be in one of the rare ones that support life. Right now, there don't seem to be many other serious alternatives. If you have trouble believing this, get Rees's excellent bo [Original review, November ] This book blew me away

How did atoms assemble - here on Earth, and perhaps on other worlds - into living beings intricate enough to ponder their origins? This book describes the recent avalanche of discoveries about the universe's fundamental laws, and the deep connections that exist between stars and atoms - the cosmos and the microscopic world. Just six numbers, imprinted in the big bang, determine the essence of our world, and this book devotes one chapter to explaining each.

It was published in Rees made some predictions about what might happen over the next ten years. I was interested to see how they had worked out: Prediction 1. This definitely came out as he said it would. If anything, we understand the large-scale structure of the universe better than we expected.

Prediction 2. We would know what "dark matter" is made of. Alas, we still don't. I am not even sure if we are significantly closer to finding out.

Prediction 3. We would have a solid "Theory of Everything" which unified the four forces of nature, and which would probably be based on superstring theory. This has also failed to happen - though we have at least confirmed that the Higgs particle exists, which makes his scenarios for the very early universe a little less speculative. We still don't know. Experiments to try and detect hypothetical dark matter particles have not produced any conclusive results.

There is a decent summary of the situation as of early in the second half of Freese's The Cosmic Cocktail , but none of the optimistic predictions there have been fulfilled.

One interesting new idea has turned up following the LIGO gravitational wave results: it's just about possible that the dark matter could consist of large primordial black holes, of the kind found by LIGO. But this idea isn't very popular. Superstring theory is not doing well. The predicted supersymmetric partners have failed to show up at the LHC.

While they haven't been completely excluded by experiment, most people are now assuming that they aren't there. Loop Quantum Gravity has however become considerably more respectable.
