FORCES OF NATURE

BRIAN COX & ANDREW COHEN    Book Number: 81608    Product format: Hardback

A computer-enhanced photograph shows the vast scale of the Olympus Mons volcano on Mars; planetary formation is shown in motion with a photograph that captures the birth of a planetary system (page 51), astonishing photographs of human towers of people that defy gravity; the clumsy-looking manatees who in order to survive make for the warm waters of Florida; a firework exploding with a full explanation of how light travels at approximately one foot per nanosecond - every page looks at either symmetry, motion, elements or colour. Professor Brian Cox is well known for searching for the deepest answers to the simplest questions. This big beautiful BBC book is a spectacular gallery of natural events and objects. What is motion? Why is every snowflake different? Why is life symmetrical? From the immensity of the Universe and the roundness of Earth to the form of every single snowflake, the forces of nature shape everything we see. Pushed to extremes, the results are astonishing. The colours, structure, behaviour and history of Earth, we are taken to the great plains of the Serengeti, the volcanoes of Indonesia and the precipitous cliffs in Nepal, to the humpback whales of the Caribbean and the Northern Lights of the Arctic where Brian Cox will answer questions that illuminate our understanding of the Universe. With coloured supporting diagrams throughout, huge full page quality colour photographs in a very large sized publication, 288pp. 9" x 11".
