A Note To My Readers

Dear Reader(s): This is Ethan, and I’m writing this to you to let you know that I owe you an apology. I have gotten so excited with the idea of bringing the story of the Universe to you — to tell you how we got from the birth of the Universe to the present day,…

Setting up for the Blogosphere
