PHD Comics creator Jorge Cham and particle physicist Daniel Whiteson have teamed up on We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe, an entertaining and lucid explanation of particle physics—what little we know of it. Exploring the biggest unknowns in the universe, they ponder why these things are still mysteries, and what a lot of smart people are doing to figure out the answers (or at least ask the right questions). They also work to demystify many complicated things we do know about, from quarks and neutrinos to gravitational waves and exploding black holes. With humor and relatability, they invite us to see the universe as a vast expanse of mostly uncharted territory that’s still ours to explore. Watch a video.
