Only the Longest Threads

Please, Ms. Physicist, tell me a story, one that uses my language and down-to-earth images to bring your cosmic universe a few light years closer to me. Lo and behold, Tasneem Zehra Husain conjures the fly-on-the-wall experience of a witness to momentous breakthroughs in physics from Newton’s classical mechanics to the latest in string theory to the Higgs boson. She frames the big questions in casual conversation; we mortals see how the great physicists use their brains.
