Space elevators, gold asteroids and fusion-powered toasters - who knew science could be so much fun? 3D print yourself in the company of a top scientist with hilarious illustrations and investigations into future technologies, from how to fling a ship into deep space on the cheap, to 3D organ printing. What will tomorrow be like? Why do we not have a lunar colony already?

We are shown an amazing world around us and what will come very very soon. 358pp, colour cartoons and printed on glossy heavy paper. US import. Remainder mark.

Aimed at teenage reading public. Use of crude cartoons lowers the tone. Subjects covered all excellent, but could not get beyond quirky presentation
