    Imagine you are standing with your face up and your mouth wide open underneath a waterfall of Skittles. At first, a few Skittles get into your mouth and you can taste them. Awesome, you think. I love Skittles.Then, the Skittles become overwhelming, as more and more try to force themselves in, and mi...

    We are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out—and we have only just begun. Neil deGrasse Tyson, within 224 pages, attempts to cover the entirety space and time. He does a pretty good job. However, this is not Astrophysics for Dummies. There are assum...
