Synopsis

Transport The Amazing Story of Ships, Trains, Aircraft and Cars, and How They Work by Peter Mellett, Chris Oxlade

Looking at each method of transport in turn, this exhaustive reference examines the developing technologies through the ages and charts discoveries such as the wheel, steam power, the internal combustion engine and jet propulsion. Over 40 projects show how things work, including how ships float and how birds fly, make a monorail or a model plane. Meet the pioneers and inventors that made it all happen and find out what the future holds.
