Mankind has gone to great lengths to explore space. It is a natural curiosity that has led us to build incredible machines and push the boundaries of what we thought was possible. From the incredible space experiments and record-breaking astronauts to multiverse theories and the hunt for wormholes.

“Many religions now come before us with ingratiating smirks and outspread hands, like an unctuous merchant in a bazaar. They offer consolation and solidarity and uplift, competing as they do in a marketplace. But we have a right to remember how barbarically they behaved when they were strong and were making an offer that people could not refuse.”

How old is bread? It's history, isn't it? Right? :D

The earliest recognizable forms of flat bread, made from a paste of ground cereals and water, appear with the first farming communities of the Fertile Crescent, about 10,000 years ago.

Although the agriculturalist diet was less nutritionally diverse than that of earlier hunter gatherers, the importance of bread in the development of human society shouldn’t be underestimated.

Without the intensification of cereal production, early farming communities would have had insufficient food resources to supply those engaged in non-procurement activities, such as art and literature. Without bread, civilisation could have taken a very different turn.

From critically acclaimed author Lawrence Krauss comes a boldly titled book "The Greatest Story Ever Told… So Far" that showcases both the wonder of physics and his expert ability to convey it simply to a non-expert audience.

Some of the chapters are, at the very least, tailored for an enthusiast of the physical laws, but that should not dissuade those who are interested in investigating humanity’s place in nature.

In 23 chapters Krauss guides us through the features of the universe that govern our very existence and reveals the questions that remain a mystery to our greatest minds, which are bound to intrigue.

Why is hydrogen so common in the universe?

As the simplest element (with just one proton in its nucleus), hydrogen was produced in vast quantities in the early universe and has dominated ever since.

Protons and neutrons appeared one second after the Big Bang. Pairs of protons and neutrons combined to form deuterium nuclei, which fused to create helium nuclei. But the abundance of protons relative to neutrons meant that single protons (in other words hydrogen nuclei) outnumbered helium nuclei and the early universe ended up consisting of roughly 75 percent hydrogen and 25 percent helium atoms by mass.

Other elements were created much later when hydrogen and helium fused inside stars.
