Synopsis

When Copernicus proposed nearly 500 years ago that the Earth was not the centre of the known universe, he upended western science. The notion that we on earth are not particularly unique has become a central tenet of our study of the cosmos ever since. Now in The Copernicus Complex, Caleb Scharf shows how a series of remarkable new discoveries suggest that there may indeed be something very special about our cosmic home. By taking a journey through some of the most astonishing research in astronomy today, he shows that some aspects of our existence are genuinely unique, and reveals what it means for our quest to determine whether we are alone in the universe.
