Science fiction will sometimes address the topic of religious themes are used to convey a broader message, but others confront the subject head-on—contemplating, for example, how attitudes towards faith might shift in the wake of ever-advancing technological progress, or offering creative scientific explanations for the apparently mystical events related in religious .   It is possible to write the history of our increasing knowledge about the universe and our place in it as a series of blows to human pride. We discovered that the Earth and then the Sun are not the center of the universe, that we do not reside at the center of the galaxy and that there is nothing particularly special about our own Milky Way system. Explore the Universe shows how our ideas about the Universe evolved as we developed new astronomical instruments. It presents the Universe as discerned by the naked eye, then shows how the telescope, photography, spectroscopy, and digital technology revolutionized our view.

Formerly the domain of fiction, moving human civilization to the stars is increasingly becoming a scientific possibility - and a necessity. In "A Universe from Nothing" Krauss explains the groundbreaking advances in cosmology and in our understanding of physics that provide insight into how the universe formed, and what its future.

Mostly, it is a space, a clearing, opened up by our memories and anticipations. What we call time in our daily life is these memories and anticipations. In The Order of Time you write that “perhaps the emotion of time is precisely what time is for us.” The main message of my book is that time is a multilayered notion.
