According to the latest theories, scientists know only about 5 percent of what makes up the cosmos. The rest? It’s still a mystery. Experimental Physicist Daniel Whiteson and Scientist-Turned-Cartoonist Jorge Cham take us on a whirlwind tour (with live drawing) through everything we don’t know about the Universe—from dark matter and dark energy to what happened before the Big Bang.
Jorge Cham is the creator of Piled Higher and Deeper (PhD Comics) and a recovering roboticist. Daniel Whiteson is an experimental particle physicist at the University of California at Irvine, who conducts research at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Together, Jorge and Daniel have created wildly popular and viral videos on gravitational waves and the discovery of the Higgs Boson. We Have No Idea is their first book together.
