Kelvin and the Age of the Universe

Kelvin and the Age of the Universe is a compilation of writings by author Yuri Heymann. This book is a compendium of Heymann’s knowledge and covers several different topics, all under the umbrella of astronomy.

This well-researched book begins with a history lesson that takes a deep dive into the Mayans and ends with the Renaissance. Then, Heymann craftily explains in detail how Astronomy has evolved over thousands of years. For each culture and society talked about, we learn how these societies contributed to the field of Astronomy and how Astronomy contributed to their cultures and religious beliefs. For example, it is fascinating to read how ancient Greek and Egyptian mythologies were impacted by astronomy and vice versa.

The historical section of Astronomy is also the most accessible to novices. Heymann does a good job writing on a level that most can comprehend. Many of the topics covered in the book are well researched and make for an interesting read. I feel that readers should have some basic knowledge of physics and astronomy as Heymann goes into specific astrological theories.

Heymann’s writing is concise, to the point, and still captivates the reader. Some of the equations and technical language can be a little intimidating to the less experienced, but Heymann makes his work as accessible as possible. The author never assumes his reader is as knowledgeable as him, and for the most part, many of the topics are explained in great detail. His arguments are well made, and absolutely everything is aided with evidence. For anyone looking to read further, his reference lists are extensive.

Kelvin and the Age of the Universe is an interesting read for anyone interested in astronomy. This intellectually invigorating book includes fascinating historical elements of physics and astronomy, making this book a unique blend of historical documentation and advanced theoretical astronomy.
