Joy Hakim continues The Story of Science with a fresh look at the people who wanted to know more about the invisible realities, intricate wonders, and magnificent architecture of our universe. Newton at the Center begins with the reclusive Copernicus and his astounding theory that the sun is at the center of the universe. She follows Galileo from his invention of the pendulum, to his development of the telescope, to his fateful claim that the earth moves around the sun. Newton stands at the center of Book Two with his monumental discoveries about gravity, motion, and light, marking the true beginning of science as we know it today. Hakim also presents Antoine Lavoisier and the birth of chemistry, John Dalton and his ideas about the existence of atoms, Wilhelm Roentgen and his discovery of x-rays, and Robert Boyle and his simple yet influential experiments with air. The book closes with the basics of atomic theory, offering intriguing portraits of the scientists who built on each other's theories in their tireless pursuit of answers.
