About the book:

Ever wondered what the end of the Universe might actually look like? Why the number 42 is so significant? Or whether time travel really would put a stop to history as we know it? If so you are clearly a fan of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, now a major motion picture. Much of the book was sheer whimsy: talking mattresses, the Vogons, triple-breasted whores and that Ol' Janx Spirit. But like all good science fiction, it contained more than a grain of scientific fact. Adams was a science and technology enthusiast and his books were inspired by - prefigured even - many of the great scientific debates of our times. Now The Science of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy brings you a light-hearted, accessible and informative tour of the real cutting-edge research behind the corner-stones of a much-loved classic, including space tourism, parallel universes, instant translation devices, sentient computers and more.
