The 4 Percent Universe

Author: Richard Panek

Reader: Ray Porter

Format: 9 CDs (Unabridged)

2012 Audie Award Finalist, Nonfiction. A handful of scientists have been racing to explain the disturbing fact that only four percent of the universe consists of the matter that makes up you, me, our things, and every star and planet. The rest is unknown. A science writer brings to life the dramatic quest to find this "dark" matter and "dark" energy. "This lively story of big personalities, intellectual competitiveness, and ravenous curiosity is as entertaining as it is illuminating."—Publishers Weekly

From the author of Einstein's Dreams.
