This is a lyrical book inspired by the most recent discoveries in a wide range of scientific disciplines. It divulges the elegant language and the findings of many scientists and makes them available to a wide audience to savor. In the first section you will discover a rich and diverse tapestry of ideas covering many fields of active research such as subatomic particles, oceanic habitats, galactic geology, molecular biology and computing. One wonders how scientists are able to investigate such an unlimited array of phenomena and what it is in discovery that motivates them so passionately. In the second section, a collection of short writings captures scientific perceptions and vocabulary put into a free and imaginative form that conjures up the mind and makes one pause and reflect.
