Description

Find out about lava bombs, lost cities, lodestones and magnets, how the pyramids were made, who invented the coach trip, and why plumbers are called plumbers in this fantastic book jam-packed with super interesting facts and information about inventions and discoveries! Embark on a journey through a network of knowledge down the centuries and discover how we figured out the way to unlock the materials found in nature and then put them to work to transport us wherever we want to go. Did you know that cold rocks were turned into hot metals, invisible forces were picked up by carved stone, and sand and soot were used to make the toughest spacecraft ever? Explore how ideas have evolved through time with this brilliant fact-filled book.
