Documenting one of the most remarkable flowerings of knowledge in human history, this work describes the experiments and achievements of innovative physicists such as Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Erwin Schrodinger, Hans Bethe and Richard Feynman. The illustrations focus mainly on the dramatic images, from the atomic to the cosmic scale, made possible by the instruments of advanced physics. Also included are photographs of experimental equipment (massive particle colliders are beautiful in their own right) and pioneering inventions.
