Stephen Sass studies why materials behave the way they do: why glass breaks, why metal bends, why alloys are stranger than pure substances. His research leads him to the cutting edge of research into those materials that will dominate the century to come. But in Wonderful Things, Sass takes us back into history, back to humanity's first attempts to improve life by experimenting with materials.

His research leads him to the cutting edge of research into those materials that will dominate the century to come. But in Wonderful Things, Sass takes us back into history, back to humanity's first attempts to improve life by experimenting with materials. From the Stone Age, Iron Age, and Bronze Age through the days of aluminum, polymers, and silicon, human civilization unfolds as the story of how those materials -- as well as gold, silver, paper, glass, steel, and copper -- were discovered, applied, and adapted. The properties of materials have always shaped our lives, dictating how we build, eat, communicate, wage war, create art, and worship. Millennia ago, the first crude instruments were made from clay; today, clay is the source of the silicon that runs our computers. Filled with fact after fascinating fact, this highly entertaining book connects the worlds of minerals and molecules to the sweep of human history.Taal: Engels; Formaat: ePub met kopieerbeveiliging (DRM) van Adobe; Kopieerrechten: Het kopiëren van (delen van) de pagina's is niet toegestaan ; Geschikt voor: Alle e-readers geschikt voor ebooks in ePub formaat.

The story of human civilization can be read most deeply in the materials we have found or created, used or abused. They have dictated how we build, eat, communicate, wage war, create art, travel, and worship. Some, such as stone, iron, and bronze, lend their names to the ages. Others, such as gold, silver, and diamond, contributed to the rise and fall of great empires. How would history have unfolded without glass, paper, steel, cement, or gunpowder?The impulse to master the properties of our ma The story of human civilization can be read most deeply in the materials we have found or created, used or abused. They have dictated how we build, eat, communicate, wage war, create art, travel, and worship. Some, such as stone, iron, and bronze, lend their names to the ages. Others, such as gold, silver, and diamond, contributed to the rise and fall of great empires. How would history have unfolded without glass, paper, steel, cement, or gunpowder?The impulse to master the properties of our material world and to invent new substances has remained unchanged from the dawn of time; it has guided and shaped the course of history. Sass shows us how substances and civilizations have evolved together. In antiquity, iron was considered more precious than gold. The celluloid used in movie film had its origins in the search for a substitute for ivory billiard balls. The same clay used in the pottery of antiquity has its uses in today's computer chips. Moving from the Stone Age to the Age of Silicon, from the days of prehistoric survival to the cutting edge of nanotechnology, this fascinating and accessible book connects the worlds of minerals and molecules to the sweep of human history, and shows what materials will dominate the century ahead.
