DR HARRY CLIFF
PARTICLE PHYSICIST & AUTHOR
My first (hopefully) popular science book, How To Make An Apple Pie From Scratch, is coming out this August, published by Doubleday in the USA and Picador in the UK. It tells the story of one of humankind's most exciting intellectual journeys: the search for origin of matter. In the book I explore how physicists, astronomers and cosmologists uncovered the basic building blocks of matter and traced their origins through the hearts of dying stars and back to the Big Bang. It's also a reflection on where we stand after an exciting yet perplexing decade at the Large Hadron Collider, and where the next big breakthroughs in our understanding of matter may come from.
Oh, and, it's all told through the hopefully reassuring narrative device of searching for the ultimate apple pie recipe. Why an apple pie? Well...
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe
