Summary
This book tells the story of the quest to answer an important question: What is this universe of ours all about? From the ancient city of Alexandria with its gigantic lighthouse and steam-powered vehicles, to faraway lands where Hindu and Arab mathematicians invented the number zero, the author invites readers of all ages to meet the forefathers of modern science and experience their greatest discoveries in astronomy, math, and physics
