The exciting colour photographs and artworks draw the reader in to find out more about basic scientific principles and how things work, while practical experiments increase understanding of these concepts as well as being fun to do. Explore how astronauts and astronomers have pieced together knowledge of the universe through history, before discovering how and why our planet is unique and how life support systems such as the atmosphere, water, and energy from the sun make the Earth so rich and varied. Investigate landmarks in design and inventions that enabled the development of transport on the sea, on land and through the air over the centuries, and discover how ships, trains, cars and planes have changed human life. Meet the pioneers and inventors who made it all happen, the fascinating geniuses behind the inventions, and find out what the future holds in store. The 150 interactive practical projects include how to make a dish antenna and a rocket, and even how to create rainbows and an erupting geyser!
