Among them are some of the earliest explorers and collectors, the first professional scientists, twentieth century pioneers in emerging scientific disciplines and some of today’s leading scientists who are continuing to make discoveries about our world and working to shape our future.

Ranging from the first European explorers to today's top young scientists, from nuclear and earth sciences, to Antarctic science, genetics and medicine.
Atoms. dinosaurs & DNA conveys solid basic information as well as intriguing details of academic quibbles and personal foibles
Beautifully illustrated and handsomely produced, the book is aimed at a young adult audience. It certainly should find a place in all school libraries, but it deserves a prominent place on home bookshelves, too.
