Etienne Klein is a physicist, director of the Research Laboratory for Material Science of the Commission on Atomic Energy (CEA) and was part of the research team who designed the particle accelerator at CERN. Highly relevant today, his book On the Origin of the Universe tackles in a gripping style the biggest questions driving physics by increasing the reader awareness to the cosmology quest : « a start to this endless question ». Crossing science and philosophy, this essay reveals the unsuspected poetry in the basic laws of the Universe.

Étienne Klein will participate in:
« CANCELLED — THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM », interview, Wednesday, October 26th, The New York Public Library - Celeste Bartos Forum.

“We build too many walls and not enough bridges.”  Isaac Newton
