This is not a book designed for a person to just sit down and read There are 250 articles covering different eventstheoriesfindings in the history of Physics Some of the explanations are short ok too short In some cases near the end of the book we are given theories of the end of the universe and its impact on earth the problem being that other events will wipe out the earth before that heat death of core sun expanding etc

This is a great coffee table book with lots of illustrations The author has picked over 250 milestones in the history of physics For each one he provides a one page essay and a beautiful full page photoI ve never seen a book that makes physics look appealing or that demonstrates the breadth of its reach and application One amazing thing I noticed today is the article Prehistoric Nuclear Reactor Apparently 2 billion years before humans walked the Earth a natural nuclear reactor formed by chance under what is now Gabon Africa This reactor chugged along for hundreds of thousands of years estimatedAccording to the book sf writer Roger Zelazny in his novel Bridges of Ashes supposes that an alien race created the Gabon reactor to accelerate evolution through mutation And thus Homo sapiens entered the picture It would be tough to read this book cover to cover But it s fun to pick it up now and then and marvel at the many tremendous discoveries and historical milestones that are covered within
