Description:
Here is the essential guide to engineering, an authoritative reference book and timeline about how technology has given shape to our civilization. Engineering predates humanity; Homo habilis was knapping hand axes from st-sized ints more than a thousand centuries before the dawn of modern humans. Admittedly the development of technology was slow back then-but we've made up for lost time since. Striding from the Stone Age to Silicon Valley in 100 steps, we will see how our inventors have seized every scienti c breakthrough, new material, and better understanding to improve daily life and expand the scope of civilization. From reshaping rivers and containing the forces of nature to constructing arti cial lifeforms and perhaps one day even taming alien planets, engineers think big. These men and women of action make our world.* A guide to each eld of engineering and the materials they employ gives and insight into their achievements, their limits, and what might come next.* Includes biographies of the great engineers, such as Archimedes, Tesla, and Watt, showing the inspirations that lay behind their goals.*
A graphical representation of engineering milestones, showing the rst, biggest, and fastest from across the eld boosts the contents for all readers.* 100 Ponderables also contains a 12-page Timeline History of Engineering.
