IBNA- Italian physicist and author Carlo Rovelli's book 'Reality Is Not What It Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity' which takes a closer look at the mind-bending nature of the universe has been published in Persian.
Carlo Rovelli who has been dubbed "the next Stephen Hawking" by the 'Times Magazine' first published this book in Italian in 2014. The English version was put in print in 2016. 'Reality Is Not What It Seems’ has been translated into Persian by Ali Khodadadi Shahi and Nashr-e No has released the book in 268 pages and 1100 copies.
What are the elementary ingredients of the world? Do time and space exist? And what exactly is reality? Rovelli has spent his life exploring these questions. He tells us how our understanding of reality has changed over the centuries and how physicists think about the structure of the universe today.
He takes us on a wondrous journey from Democritus to Albert Einstein, from Michael Faraday to gravitational waves, and from classical physics to his own work in quantum gravity. As he shows us how the idea of reality has evolved over time, Rovelli offers deeper explanations of the theories he introduced so concisely in ‘Seven Brief Lessons on Physics’.
This book culminates in a lucid overview of quantum gravity, the field of research that explores the quantum nature of space and time, seeking to unify quantum mechanics and general relativity. Rovelli invites us to imagine a marvelous world where space breaks up into tiny grains, time disappears at the smallest scales, and black holes are waiting to explode—a vast universe still largely undiscovered.
