The Copernicus Complex by Caleb Scharf, out now from Scientific American/Farrar, Straus & Giroux, examines our place in the cosmic order. Renowned astrophysicist Scharf takes readers on a scientific adventure, from tiny microbes within the Earth to distant expoplanets, probability theory, and beyond, to explore the question of whether our existence in the universe is unique, insignificant, or far more complicated than either of those possibilities suggest.
