Discoveries That Changed the World(2000)
(A book in the WOW! series)
A non fiction book by Philip Ardagh
In association with the Science Museum, this brilliant book is bursting with facts, figures and photographs. Imagine the unimaginable: a world without electricity, genetics, penicillin, nuclear weapons or even plastic. Have you ever wondered how such things were discovered? From theories of gravity and relativity to X-rays and DNA, this book looks at discoveries which - for good or for bad - have made the world what it is today. Eureka!
