With quirky visual metaphors and concise factual explanations, she offers just the right amount of information to stoke the curious mind with a desire to know more about the life forces that animate both the smallest cell and the biggest black hole.Seeing Science illustrates, explicates, and celebrates the marvels of science as only art can.
