Accompanying a landmark BBC television series, Science Story traces the breakthroughs in every area of science from classical times to today. Throughout, the award-winning authors show us the big historical picture too. Great science happens when brilliant minds collide with new discoveries and tools at specific points in time. These intriguing and sometimes quirky insights are summarized in unique 'Connections' diagrams throughout the book. And we see the powerful and poignant human stories behind the discoveries.
