            The thrilling autobiography of the astronaut who inspired a generation The #1 bestselling author of Hello, is this planet Earth? and Ask an Astronaut 'I looked down below my feet and suddenly noticed Australia flashing by. The vertigo hit me then. My gloved hands gripped the hand...rail as tightly as I could. I had been on my spacewalk for over an hour. I had trained for this moment for years. But nothing can prepare you for that feeling, for the full realisation that you are no longer living on Earth. Staring into the inky blackness, I felt completely isolated from everything and everyone I had ever known. And yet at the same time I could not help feeling a strange sense of belonging.' In fascinating and personal detail, and based on exclusive diaries and audio recordings from his mission, Tim Peake takes readers closer than ever before to experience what life in space is really like: the sacrifice that astronauts make in being apart from their families, the sights, the smells, the fear, the exhilaration and the deep and abiding wonder of the view from space. Limitless is a book about the power of following our dreams - however unlikely they may seem - and of striving to reach our potential, even when we might not believe in it ourselves. Limitless also charts Peake's surprising road to becoming an astronaut, from a shy and unassuming boy from Chichester who had a passion for flight, to a young British Army officer, Apache helicopter pilot, flight instructor and test pilot who served around the world. Peake's extensive eighteen-year career in the army included the command of a platoon of soldiers in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, deployment in Bosnia, and flying multiple high-risk sorties as a test pilot, including operations in Afghanistan. After he was selected by the European Space agency from over 8000 candidates, Peake undertook six years of training to be an astronaut, tested physically, psychologically, emotionally and intellectually - from learning Russ

            The first is that the most common explanation for time - entropy - is flawed: firstly, because we have no way of explaining how the concentration of energy that would allow the Big Bang to take place came about, and secondly because none of our understanding of entropy takes into... account the fact that the universe is infinitely expanding.

            Fundamentals is built around a simple but profound idea: the models of the world we construct as children are practical and adequate for everyday life, but they do not take account of the surprising and mind-expanding revelations of modern science. To do that, we must look at the... universe anew, combining clear thinking with an openness to wonder. This born again universe is larger, fuller and much stranger than we might expect. Equipped with facts, questions, brilliant speculations and expert clarity, Wilczek guides us through an illuminating exploration of space, time, matter and ideas.
