The first science book I ever read blew my mind. I can’t remember the name of the book, but I know who it was written by: Marcus Chown.
In it he explained, in his effortless way, how the Universe began and how it might all end. To this day, the sense of wonder that Marcus’s writing inspired epitomises what makes science, and writing and reading about it, so special.
I want to share this scientific wonder with you all, and so this special feature celebrates some of the most mind-expanding ideas in science right now. From the search for dark matter to the quest to end ageing, there’s hopefully something for everyone.
