Discover major scientific theories, how they have developed and the fascinating discoveries that have led to them and supported them. Then go beyond the theory to explore the possibilities that are yet to come! From discovering life on other planets, to cloning humans, find out what scientists are doing right now to deepen our understanding and make the impossible possible!
Even the most reluctant readers are curious about cloning and the scientific future of human evolution. This book finally makes it possible for them to access the latest information about genetic engineering, stem cells, heredity and the idea that humans may be able to manipulate the process of reproduction to create the offspring they want. It even covers hot topics like eugenics and the genetic modification of plants and animals used for food. With vivid, full-colour artwork and fascinating fact boxes throughout, this book will find a perfect home in any collection.

Wells and Carl Sagan. Astrobiology, or the search for aliens, has never been so accessible as in this text. With full-colour artwork and accessible main text and fact boxes, readers enjoy indulging in alien theories while also learning about science and history.
