As well as outlining and explaining such historic breakthroughs in human understanding of the physical world as Kepler's law of planetary motion and Newton's law of gravitation, Joanne Baker unravels the sometimes baffling complexities of modern scientific theory - from Planck's law to Pauli's exclusion principle and from Schrondinger's cat to string theory.
