The latest addition to the Stephen Capel novels - A Fall from Grace - is now available. When a body is discovered in Bath Abbey, fallen through the great East window, Stephen Capel and Vicky Denning are drawn into a strange treasure hunt that has deadly consequences.
Built from the debris of exploding stars that floated through space for billions of years, home to a zoo of tiny aliens, and controlled by a brain with more possible connections than there are atoms in the universe, the human body is the most incredible thing in existence.
Hear Brian discuss quantum entanglement on Radio 4's Today programme.
In this highly entertaining and stimulating history, Brian Clegg takes us on a tour of that borderland between the extremely large and the ultimate, from Archimedes counting the grains of sand that would fill the universe, to the latest theories on the physical reality of the infinite.
