In this booka companion to the six-part PBS seriesMIT physics professor Morrison and his wife, a teacher and science writer, embark on a historical adventure through the discoveries of the physical sciences: the puzzles of perception, Galileo and the telescope, early map making and navigation, modern geological exploration, and astrophysics and quantum mechanics. Each chapter seeks to answer the question: How has science enabled us to know about the world? This book will be of interest to science-minded readers of all ages. Highly recommended.
