It’s about a long journey of discovery & the forces & persons who helped shape modern science, including Democritus, Hypatia, Kepler, Newton, Huygens, Champollion, Lowell & Humason. It explores missions to nearby planets, the Library of Alexandria, the human brain, Egyptian hieroglyphics, life’s origin, the sun’s death, galactic evolution & the origins of matter, suns & worlds.
