Each spread includes a credit to the expert involved with its creation, and special features highlight some of the most intriguing unsolved puzzles in science, archaeology, history, and engineering.
Embark on an exhilarating journey that takes you from the birth of our Universe to the world of tomorrow.
Browse topics as diverse as dinosaurs, deep-sea exploration, glow-in-the-dark scorpions, genetics, mummification, samurai warriors and soaring skyscrapers.
