DESCRIPTION :

Be inspired by scientific endeavour, from the earliest times to the information age.

Science explains discoveries in plain English, from the geometry of the ancient Greeks to quantum physics. Accompanied by lavish illustrations and diagrams throughout, you will learn about gravity, string theory, antibiotics, in vitro fertilisation (IVF), and much, much more.

This indispensable volume presents the search for truth by showing how one discovery led to another. The Mesopotamians' invention of the wheel more than 5,000 years ago, for example, led to gears and then a variety of mechanisms from clocks to engines, disk drives, and even the electric toothbrush. What do they all have in common? They all rely on an internal wheel to keep them moving.

Science also reveals eureka moments in scientific history, such as inventing the light bulb or creating a vaccination for the first time, and presents pioneers including Galileo Galilei, Alan Turing, and Marie Curie.

Suitable for the whole family, this is the definitive guide to the awe-inspiring history of science.
