Description
Since the time of the ancient Greeks, who first suggested that matter might be made of indivisible atoms, physics has been the encompassing science that aims to explain the nature of the universe. In this beautifully illustrated book Anne Rooney traces the developments of physics from the natural philosophers of the ancient world to cutting-edge experiments in quantum mechanics. She explores light and optics, from simple lenses to the wave-particle duality of light; masses and forces, and how to harness energy and mass to work for us; the bizarre world of subatomic particles; and our fascination with the stars. She also portrays giants of science from Archimedes, Galileo, and Newton to Curie, Einstein, and Hawking.
