The fourth addition to the Ponderables  series, Physics: An Illustrated History of the Foundations Science follows famous scientists and other experts through the ages as they unravel the fabric of the universe to reveal the array of fundamental forces, intangible articles, and indestructible energy that make up one of our core scientific studies. Filled with glorious color photos, imagery and diagrams, this authoritative volume even includes a simple physics guide and timeline that add new context to the fresh mysteries such as Higgs Boson, supersymmetry, and dark energy. Biographies of the great physicists plus 100 chronological articles on the history of physics build on the popular  Who did what when?  Ponderables trademark.

In a world where technology and science have become familiar and exciting subjects, Physics finally lays wide open one of science s more mystifying facets, the knowledge without which everything else from astronomy to zoology would simply be meaningless conjecture.
