20th Century Science and Technology is a decade-by-decade account of scientists and their breakthroughs, inventors and their inventions, that have shaped the modern world. A fact-filled text and both full-color and duotone photographs come together to create an exciting presentation of scientific and technological progress in conjunction with other history-making world events of the time.In the midst of mass production, science reached for the stars. Researchers probed both the tiny particles inside atoms and the most gigantic galaxies of the universe. By the 1930s, scientists were smashing atoms to pieces. Inventors were using cutting edge technology to build rockets and jet engines. Manufacturing got bigger, faster, and more mechanical than ever.
