From Knocking on Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World, by Lisa Randall


"I am stunned by how much we can precisely measure now about the universe and it's history.  Not only do we know the universe's age much more accurately than ever before, but we know how the universe grew with time, how nuclei were formed, and how galaxies and clusters of galaxies began their evolution.  Before we had a qualitative picture of what had happened.  Now we have an accurate scientific picture."

From Chapter Nineteen, Inside Out
