Science is a serious business – as any acclaimed immunologist would tell you. Or would they?
Luke O’Neill, world-renowned Immunologist and the science teacher you wish you’d had, finds it hilarious. In this spell-binding book O’Neill explores the history of (almost) the entirety of science asking a mind-boggling array of questions such as how did life begin? What does the warping of spacetime in a black hole actually look like? And what's happening on the 4,800 exoplanets beyond our solar system? This joyful journey into science tells the zigzag story of how we got to this moment in human history, and what the future might hold.
