PRLog - Jun. 11, 2012 - British author Wyken Seagrave is producing 365 daily tweets and emails to explain the main steps in the history of the universe.

We are all curious about where we came from. By reviewing knowledge gained from a wide range of sciences during the past fifty years, Wyken Seagrave has pieced together the story of how we arrived here. Starting from the Big Bang he traces the way matter organised itself on both the largest and the smallest of scales.

“I think this story gives us all a new and inspiring vision of our place in the wider scheme of things,” Seagrave explained. “It puts our human problems into perspective.”

Tweets will appear on the Twitter account http://twitter.com/@Hotu365 with the hash tag #hotu. They will cover the major steps in history from the Big Bang to the present day, then use the lessons of history to make some predictions about the future. In addition the tweets will explain all the basic science required to understand the story.

Alternatively, readers might chose to receive more detailed information in their email inbox by subscribing to the History of the Universe email list at http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=hotu365

Hotu365 integrates a wide range of scientific, historical and social knowledge into a single unified story which not only shows us how we fit into the world around us but also uses the lessons of the past to make predictions about the future.

“Wyken Seagrave has carefully selected the information which he covers to provide a succinct yet encyclopaedic view of history,” said commissioning editor Philip Brown. “As well as telling the story in chronological order, he explains each of the key terms in simple language, with links to external sources of information.”

Each tweet is linked to the history of the universe website (http://www.historyoftheuniverse.com) written by the same author, where the summary given in the tweet is explained in more detail.

These tweets are ideal both for the reader wishing to gain an insight into science and history, as well as for students of integrated science or “Big History” courses in schools or colleges.
