According to IBNA

In ‘The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe’
, the theoretical physicist Steven Weinberg
explains what happened at the very beginning of the universe, and how we know, in this popular science classic.
Our universe has been growing for nearly 14 billion years. But almost everything about it, from the elements that forged stars, planets, and lifeforms, to the fundamental forces of physics, can be traced back to what happened in just the first three minutes of its life.
Weinberg describes in wonderful detail what happened in these first three minutes. It is a journey that begins with the Planck Epoch - the earliest period of time in the history of the universe - and goes through Einstein's Theory of Relativity, the Hubble Red Shift, and the detection of the Cosmic Microwave Background.
These incredible discoveries all form the foundation for what we now understand as the "standard model" of the origin of the universe. ‘The First Three Minutes’ examines not only what this model looks like, but also tells the exciting story of the bold thinkers who put it together.
‘The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe’ in Persian has been published in 288 pages and 1500 copies.
