I was impressed to read this book.the theme The history of nuclear physics is written systematically.It is composed of the elements necessary to human beings by the supernova explosion.I recommend the book.Who are interested in
This book is one of my favorite books that I read well, you need a science education to begin to read this, but then it s fantastic The best science book I ve read Felt like I was reading a racy detective thriller, and yes I do still remember much of what he said, so thank you Marcus. Chown, Marcus The Magic Furnace The Search for the Origins of Atoms 2001 Captivating, informative, demanding, but highly readableThe title is an allusion to the dream of the alchemists of old who sought a magic kiln in which to transform base metals into gold That dream remained intact until the discovery in the twentieth century of how the elements are actually built up from hydrogen and exactly what kind of magic furnace would be required to turn base metals into gold In a most engaging Chown, Marcus The Magic Furnace The Search for the Origins of Atoms 2001 Captivating, informative, demanding, but highly readableThe title is an allusion to the dream of the alchemists of old who sought a magic kiln in which to transform base metals into gold That dream remained intact until the discovery in the twentieth century of how the elements are actually built up from hydrogen and exactly what kind of magic furnace would be required to turn base metals into gold In a most engaging narrative, science writer Marcus Chown tells that fascinating story through the lives and ideas of the scientists who made the discoveries Chown begins, as one must, with the Gr
Excellent book Truly inspirational Made me feel rather insignificant Subject matter that I had not reflected on recently Obviously was taught most of it at some point, but an amazing refresher Rutherford blows my mind yet again Marcus Chown did a great job in weaving it all together like a novel. This was a very readable book Marcus Chown presented a complex story of the formation of the atoms of different elements in the universe in a very clear and understandable narrative Highly recommended. What a brilliant book this is This should be included in the school curriculum For the students interested in Physics particularly Astronomy , this book gives a good overview of what they are heading into. The Magic Furnace is a magic book The story of physics, astrophysics and astronomy is a tale that Chown begins back in ancient Greece and is the search for the origin of atoms The two thousand year investigative odyssey of what everything is made of and where atoms came from and how they were made, from the Universe rich hydrogen and helium, the light elements, all the way to the heavy atoms is a mind blower I enjoyed the authors previous work The Afterglow of Creation , and I think Magic Fu The Magic Furnace is a magic book The story of physics, astrophysics and astronomy is a tale that Chown begins back in ancient Greece and is the search for the origin of atoms The two thousand year investigative odyssey of what everything is made of and where atoms came from and how they were made, from the Universe rich hydrogen and helium, the light elements, all the way to the heavy atoms is a mind blower I enjoyed the authors previous work The Afterglow of Creation , and I think Magic Furnace is even better From the Greek philosopher Democritus, back when Alexander the Great was on his rampage, all the way to the L.H.C with who discovered what and how is set out and explained in such an easy to understand way, Marcus Chown removes the mystery and has to be congratulated.As we look out into the uni
An exhilarating account of the discoveries that led to our understanding of the nature of matter and how it is made the origin of atoms and stars All the key players are here Eddington, Hoyle, Gamow, Baade, Rutherford, and others As with Simon Singh srecent Big Bang which I enjoyed slightly , but this is still worthy of 5 stars , the author draws us into the story of discovery alongside the technical detail he takes what might otherwise have been quite a dry subject matter he An exhilarating account of the discoveries that led to our understanding of the nature of matter and how it is made the origin of atoms and stars All the key players are here Eddington, Hoyle, Gamow, Baade, Rutherford, and others As with Simon Singh srecent Big Bang which I enjoyed slightly , but this is still worthy of 5 stars ,
If you re one of those people who wants to know all about atoms, their origins and learn on the way about relativity, quantum theory and other cool stuff you can t talk about at parties unless you re really drunk, and if you once tried to pick it all up from Stephen Hawking but found he assumed too much prior knowledge, and if you want to learn it all from someone who won t patronise you and will tell you which facts are whose discoveries and when they made them, then read this Its gravitationa If you re one of those people who wants to know all about atoms, their origins and learn on the way about relativity, quantum theory and other cool stuff you can t talk about at parties unless you re really drunk, and if you once tried to pick it all up from Stephen Hawking but found he assumed too much prior know
