What does freedom look like to you? To theoretical physicist Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, freedom is (in part) thinking about "problems like dark matter and dark energy without worrying about cops killing Black people," and freedom is "everyone having a chance to look at the dark night sky, wonder about it, and know it." In her new book, The Disordered Cosmos, Dr. Prescod-Weinstein shares a deep love of physics - including the physics of melanin in skin, the nature of cosmic dark matter, and what may lie beyond the nearly-all-encompassing Standard Model of Particle Physics. Publisher's Weekly calls The Disordered Cosmos "a resonant paean to the beauties of the cosmos and a persuasive appeal for solutions to injustices in science."
