L’Ordre du temps by Carlo Rovelli Summary

Dans ses Sept brèves leçons de physique, Carlo Rovelli confiait qu’une question avait guidé sa vie de chercheur : la nature du temps. Se hissant sur les épaules d’Isaac Newton, d’Albert Einstein, de Stephen Hawking et de bien d’autres, il nous livre enfin ses découvertes dans ce livre majeur. Le temps est au cœur d’un étrange mystère. Tel un flocon de neige qui fond lorsqu’on s’en saisit, il s’est progressivement délité sous les assauts de la science : on sait dorénavant que le temps s’écoule plus lentement en plaine qu’en altitude ; qu’à l’échelle des étoiles et des planètes, il varie d’un point à l’autre, tandis qu’il ne « passe » pas au niveau microscopique. Que reste-t-il de tangible dans ces décombres ? Et comment construire une théorie du temps qui colle à notre perception, mais aussi à l’analyse des philosophes et aux fulgurances des poètes ? Voilà le défi brillamment relevé par Carlo Rovelli au fil des pages. Émerge alors un paysage d’une beauté inouïe où, pour la première fois, le temps retrouvé surgit de façon naturelle...

The Plain of Jars by N. Lombardi Jr. Summary

What would you do if you found that the bones and ashes you were given by the Air Force were not the remains of your loved one? Dorothy Kozeny, a 64-year-old widow from a small town in Ohio, after getting no answers from the relevant authorities, decides the only thing to do is to go to Laos herself to search for the truth concerning her son's fate. In 1990, accompanied by a trusted Laotian called Kampeng, Dorothy travels deep into the mountains of rural Laos, attempting to trace her son's path through inhospitable terrain, an unforgettable trek that provides her with a rewarding, often humorous, and at times frustrating, cross-cultural experience. All clues lead her to a mysterious figure, an alledged CIA operative left over from the war, living in a remote and hostile area deep in the jungle.
