The Science of Energy

View Product | ISBN: 9781682654682 | $9.95 | Paperback

For many centuries people have wondered how our world works. In early times, mythical beings and magical powers were used to explain how and why certain things happened. Only much later did awareness of energy in its many forms come to be accepted. This book follows the search for an understanding of what energy is, from the ancient Greek philosophers to the scientific discoveries of the early 21st century. It also looks at how science might help to meet our future energy needs.

The Science of Life

View Product | ISBN: 9781682654699 | $9.95 | Paperback

Over 3.5 billion years ago, a complex chemical appeared in the warm oceans of a young Earth. The chemical had a startling quality: it could reproduce itself. Over vast periods of time this ancient chemical gave rise to more than five million widely varied forms of life. This book tells the story of how life arose and evolved. It describes the discoveries of scientists who have tried to understand the very origins of life and crack the code that governs all living things.

The Science of Space

View Product | ISBN: 9781682654705 | $9.95 | Paperback

For thousands of years, the planets and stars have fascinated people on Earth. Prehistoric people scanned the heavens and tried to make sense of what they saw. They believed that the movement of the stars and planets could foretell future events. Their studies would lead to the discipline of astronomy, in which scientists work to increase our understanding of space. In recent years, complex probes and sophisticated telescopes have revealed a great deal about the space beyond our solar system, as well as the origins of the Universe. But much remains to be discovered about space.

The Science of Time

View Product | ISBN: 9781682654712 | $9.95 | Paperback

The method by which people can organize events in everyday life—from past to present to future—is known as time. But the nature of time, and whether it exists at all, has fascinated scientists and philosophers for millennia. Scholars have struggled to find the key that will unlock the secrets of time. This book takes a detailed look at the scientific quest for a greater understanding of time and its complex role in the Universe.
