Millennium House’s “Scientifica” tells of the discoveries and inventions that led to modern technology, explaining the fundamental concepts of many scientific principles, and also examines the physical world, from the stars above to the ground below.

“Scientifica” covers mathematics, astronomy, geology, physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine, explaining the major discoveries of each of these fields of science, telling the stories of the people and techniques involved, and showing how these discoveries have become part of modern life. The reader can follow the development of knowledge over time—for example, today’s atomic theory (encompassing protons, neutrons, electrons, and quarks in a structure consisting almost entirely of empty space) has its origins in the work of Democritus, a Greek philosopher of the fourth century BC.

With its large-format presentation, easy-to-follow text, and interesting images and illustrations, “Scientifica” makes the world of science accessible to all. This informative reference book will prove a valuable resource for the home library and student alike.
