Sintesi dell'editore

Einstein overthrew Newtonian physics, but like Newton, he still believed that physical events have definite causes. Then Niels Bohr, a Danish physicist, joined others in describing a strange new world of uncertainty and mystery. Quantum mechanics has intrigued and confounded many by joining keen insights with apparent contradictions and indeterminacy. Quantum theory also was later used to create semiconductors, the technology of the computer revolution.

The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history's most successful journeys: 4,000 years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom or accepted practices; this is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. Aristotle, Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, and many others are featured.

Good Story, ridiculous impersonations

The history of the atomic understanding is well recounted. Also the citations from famous key scientists are well chosen. However, the mimickery of voices of the European scientists and their ridiculous artificial (I suppose these were meant to suggest authenticity) misrepresentations of the likes of Einstein, Bohr, etc. Makes this at times an unbearable listening. Fortunately, these were short (~5%) compared to the overall story, which is pretty good. Keep in mind that with NEW Understanding, this book ends with the understanding of EP&R in 1935.

nice

a bit boring bit it's the history of science, not eyes wide shut. you get a feel for the development of the consensus on the zeitgeist.

New understanding?

When does the new understanding begin? The dullest recitation of old wrong views turned me away? Bait and switch...I came for the new and got a 'in the beginning dinosaurs roamed the Earth viewpoint' of the atom..
