The speed of light. The Milky Way as a Galaxy. Gravity bending light. All facts that most of us know. But how did they become to be facts? Who was trying to figure out these questions? How did they come to the answers?
Striking at the root of scientific curiosity, Joy Hakim's 'The Story of Science' arrests attention with flowing text that effortlessly combines biographies of eminent scientists, the scientific-historical context in which they lived, the manner in which discovery built upon discovery, and the research backing up their ideas. Centered on Einstein's path to relativity, quantum physics and nuclear physics, the track to modern astrophysics is explored in painstakingly clear terms. Interspersed timelines provide a clearer picture of what scientists were active, while archival photographs, charts, illustrations, brilliant photos of the universe, and other visual aids help to crystallize and explain these intricately complex topics. 468 pages, hardcover with dust jacket. Slightly Imperfect.
