Major scientific breakthroughs first break into existence as the bright ideas of farsighted thinkers. What begins, however, as a private "Eureka" moment may take generations, even thousands of year to evolve into full fruition. National Geographic's The Big Idea tracks these visionary concepts in words and pictures as they develop into technologies that many of us are only beginning to understand. This coffee table hardcover uses trademark National Geographic visual style to uncover the ways in which past ideas have shaped discoveries of the present and near future. Science revealed from eye-opening new angles.
