      The science in The Martian is hard and feels as real as stone. This book is a great combination of man vs. nature à la Jack London, with the inventiveness of MacGyver, moments of laugh-out-loud humor, page-turning pacing, and plot twists that are surprising but in hindsight feel inevitable. All in all, a good story well told. But with this book Brian Keating offers a guide, based on personal experience, on how to lose one. Keating takes the reader into the buzz and bust of a dried up discovery, explaining the science behind the BICEP2 experiment’s search for evidence of cosmic inflation, and exploring the effect of the Nobel on science in general.

With the Big Bang, it expanded from a state of unimaginable density to an all-encompassing cosmic fireball to a simmering fluid of matter and energy, laying down the seeds for everything from black holes to one rocky planet orbiting a star near the edge of a spiral galaxy that happened to develop life as we know it.

His research has included atomic and molecular physics, plasma physics, laser physics, nonlinear dynamics, and astrophysics. He has also discovered new research areas such as intra-Stark spectroscopy and quantum chaos and has consequently published over papers and 5 books on relevant subjects.

In A Fine-Tuned Universe: The Quest for God in Science and Theology Alister McGrath seeks to recover a vision for natural theology that is ‘both securely rooted in the long tradition of Christian theological reflection and adequately adapted to our understandings of the natural world’.
