What actually happens when the words, beam me up, Scottie are uttered? What warps when something travels at warp speed? Internationally renowned theoretical physicist and educator Lawrence M. Krauss provides matter-of-fact scientific explanations of the physics of Star Trek in this highly creative and informative guide for both the devoted Trekkie and the physics novice. Krauss reviews the basic laws of physics, as well as the ideas of leading physicists, including Newton, Hawking, Einstein, Feynman, Kirk, and Janeway. Download and start listening now!

    " I confess that while I found this book gloriously geeky, I often wished that its explanations were more thorough and/or clearer. I understand that the book was probably intended to be of a welcoming, accessible length, and that a great deal of its audience was expected to be people already at least a little knowledgeable about the physics discussed, but I felt that many explanations - even about things I think I understand reasonably well! - were confusing. Particularly given Dr. Krauss's current level of skill as a public speaker, I am hopeful that the updated version (the existence of which I did not know about when I checked this version out) will have improved and better edited explanations.

    " This book was very influential to my upbringing into physics and engineering. A guy in my German class named Rob introduced this book to me, and the prospect of reading became too much for me to ignore thanks to many a long discussion of its innards during German class. After reading about the several unlikely prospects of creating a warp drive, it became my goal to build one. Then a few years later I got into college and my life's goal was to work on real methods of long distance space exploration and human space flight. I really do love this book for much of that reason. Also, the chapter on Star Trek bloopers at the end is still awesome. I'm a nerd... "

    " spunti interessanti non solo per fan della saga ma per chi ama la scienza e la fattibilita' (o meno) di certe innovazioni tecnologiche "
