'UNIVERSE' written by our postdoctoral fellow Dr. P. C. Lalremruati!

This book, "UNIVERSE" written in the Mizo language, is part of an astronomy outreach for the local Mizo people. The book is prepared precisely in most laymen's terms without losing the philosophy of science. This is the first-ever book recorded in Mizo literature that is mainly devoted entirely to the understanding of the universe. The book starts with an introduction to particle physics and ends with the ultimate fate of the universe. It also includes chapters separately on a timeline of astronomy, the importance of astronomy in daily life, an introduction to the general theory of relativity, the large-scale structure of the universe, exploring the solar system, the life of stars, the galactic centre, exoplanets and astronomical techniques.
