What we know now is only a tiny fraction of what we have still to understand. This book is an account of what is still to be found out if our understanding of the world is to be more full. It shows how science will change our understanding of the world. What Remains to Be Discovered details the past, present, and possible future of science in three sections: "Matter," "Life," and "Our World." The author's broad, multidisciplinary grasp of science is apparent as he guides us effortlessly through the work of scientists from ancient times to the present. Having first shown us an up-to-date map of scientific knowledge, he then emphasises the large blank spaces still remaining and suggests where explorers might best continue their efforts.
