And so are George and different characters from the author’s earlier booklet Einstein’s Enigma or Black Holes in My Bubble Bath. whereas the current e-book, Universe Unveiled - The Cosmos in My Bubble Bath, is totally self sufficient, its storyline may be thought of a sequel to the former one. The medical content material spanning historical international types to the newest mysteries of cosmology is gifted in a completely nontechnical and descriptive kind throughout the discussions among Alfie, the enlightened learner, and George, professor of astrophysics. Fantasies, in line with those discussions that disguise the clinical evidence, are created through the paranormal bubble baths taken by means of Alfie.
Universe Unveiled blends exact technology with philosophy, drama, humour, and fable to create an exhilarating cosmic trip that reads like a unique and educates because it entertains.
“Spurred by way of a sequence of mind-bending discoveries, Man’s millennial love affair with the celebrities has now reached fever pitch. nobody writing this present day is healthier situated to rouse the romance and sweetness of those cosmic discoveries than Vishveshwara. a number one specialist in Einstein’s relativity conception, he brings a lyrical voice and a poetic sensibility to this pleased activity. Universe Unveiled, a different literary construction, transports readers into believing they could really listen the song of the spheres.”
