While astronomers charted the heavens. geographers and cartographers mapped the earth’s exotic land and seas. Commerce and navigation exploded as mapmakers and bold explorers built on each other’s achievements; in the process. our very concept of the earth changed from a flat surface to a sphere. The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history’s most successful journeys-four thousand years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world.

Aristotle. Copernicus. Kepler. Galileo. Newton. Darwin. Einstein. and many others are featured.
