Discover More: The Elements

What are we made of? What keeps our universe in motion? Where do fireworks get their fantastic colours? Much more than just a walk through the periodic table, this astonishing book shows how just 101 elements create the building blocks of our entire world. From diamond rings to silicon chips and rocket fuel, discover the uses of these elements, which are created by the tremendous forces of star birth and death. As you explore each element, you’ll also discover the answers to all those tough yet exciting questions about where matter comes from and how the universe started! Stunning photos and graphics make apparently ordinary substances look as extraordinary as they truly are in this dramatic book, written by acclaimed expert Dan Green.

Includes a FREE digital companion book offering all-new information, pictures and activities.
