Product DescriptionSent on a mission of good will to represent Earth on an alien world Alice isn’t quite sure what she’ll find. With her pet cat Meowhugs an obnoxious parrot named Mara and a ship named Joe as her only companions Alice finds herself trapped on the time-dilating rim of a black hole escaping just in time to watch the sun devour our solar system.
Meanwhile – or perhaps at some other time entirely – Amunet and Keku are students in a special school in a 10-Dimensional world. In their classes they are expected to create Universes out of chaos divinity and just a dash of dark energy. But Universe creation is not an exact science with every attempt requiring its own roll of the dice. When a creator makes a mistake it rains stars and planets.
Is there something they can do to help Alice in her quest for a new home? But first Alice will need to survive the perils of being an alien in the worlds she discovers. A blend of literary storytelling and unexpected humor How to Make a Big Bang: A Cosmic Journey is filled with enough science fact that readers might just learn something along the way. (This is no coincidence since one of the authors is also a distinguished Theoretical Physics professor.) Will Alice find a new home on one of the planets she discovers? Or will she end up in a cosmic zoo? Or worse in the middle of a war which could destroy the entire Universe? Obviously Alice is in for the story of her life. And quite possibly the story of all of our lives.
