Description
We live in a visual age—one of iconic and persuasive images—and certain key pictures embody our understanding of life and the universe we inhabit, posits science writer John Barrow. In this book of concepts, illustrated with the images that underscore them, Barrow traces their history in order to tell the story of modern science, from Robert Hooke's first microscopic views of the natural world to the stunning images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.

"Dozens of short essays, each prompted by one of science's visual creations.... Open it almost anywhere and you will probably learn something new, or see it from a curious new angle."—NYTBR
