Physics in 50 Milestone Moments is a lively, accessible, and thought-provoking introduction to physics, its history, and its practitioners.

Uniquely, it is structured around a timeline of landmark events that vividly brings to life the evolution of this most fundamental science; from the Stone Age, through the classical era and the Renaissance, to the present day. As well as offering a comprehensive guide to physics, this book helps make the big ideas intelligible to us by placing them in their real-world contexts.
