I am delighted and honored to announce that The Universe in Your Hand received the “Best Science Book of the Year” award yesterday, in Paris! This is one of the most prestigious science book award France has to offer!
Above is what the night sky will look like in about four billion years.
Below is what author Gill Arbuthnott wrote after chairing my event in Edinburgh last week:
“Chaired French physicist Christophe Galfard talking about The Universe in Your Hand. Christophe used a visual presentation so arresting that no one in the tent will ever need mind-altering drugs in the future, and took us on a swift tour to the edge of the universe and back again. The audience loved it and bought every copy of his book in Charlotte Square.”
