Scientific discoveries are remarkably varied in scope and content -- made in the field, on the lab bench, or at the computer, with apparatus as sophisticated as a space-based telescope or as simple as a pencil and paper. But all of the discoveries of science are ultimately disseminated through the written word. In countless professional periodicals and technical treatises, the men and women of science have followed the same writing formula: What did I discover? How can you repeat what I did? What does it mean? This volume, conceived as a companion to The Sciences: An Integrated Approach, employs the "Great Ideas in Science" approach: The authors' approach recognizes that science forms a seamless web of knowledge about the universe, and a few overarching concepts (the "great ideas") unify astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology and physics. The central thesis is that the core ideas of science are simple, and these great ideas provide a framework in understanding the universe. The goal of the book is to serve the educational needs of people who will not be scientists but who need some knowledge of science to function as citizens. Throughout this volume the reader will share in these scientific discoveries, as they were first presented to the public, and will understand the authors' belief that science is the greatest ongoing adventure.

Robert M. Hazen, research scientist at the Carnegie Institution of Washington's Geophysical Laboratory and Clarence Robinson Professor of Earth Science at George Mason University, received degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University. Past President of the Mineralogical Society of America, Hazen's recent research focuses on the role of minerals in life's origin and the co-evolution of the geo- and biospheres.
