Thompson J.M.T. (Ed.) Visions of the Future: Chemistry and Life Science
Cambridge University Press, 2001. - 208 p. - What does the future of science hold? Who is making the discoveries that will help shape this future? What areas of research show the greatest promise? Find definitive and insightful answers to such questions as these in the three volumes of Visions of the Future: Astronomy and Earth Science, Chemistry and Life Science, and Physics and Electronics. Representing a careful selection of authoritative articles published in a special issue of Philosophical Transactions-the world's longest-running scientific journal-the chapters explore such themes as:
- The Big Bang
- Humankind's exploration of the solar system
- The deep interior of the Earth
- Global warming and climate change
- Atoms and molecules in motion
- New materials and processes
- Nature's secrets of biological growth and form
- Understanding the human body and mind
- Quantum physics and its relationship to relativity theory and human consciousness
- Exotic quantum computing and data storage
Telecommunications and the Internet Written by leading young scientists, the timely contributions convey the excitement and enthusiasm that they have for their research and a preview of future research directions.
