   schema:reviewBody ""Leading young scientists, many holding prestigious Royal Society Research Fellowships, describe their research and give their visions of the future. The articles, which have been re-written in a popular and well-illustrated style, are derived from scholarly and authoritative papers published in a special Millennium Issue of the Royal Society's Philosophical Transactions (used by Newton; this is the world's longest running scientific journal). The Topics, which were selected by the journal's editor, Professor J.M.T. Thompson FRS, include the Big Bang creation of the universe; man's exploration of the Solar System; Earth's deep interior; current scientific ideas about global warming and climate change. The boon conveys the excitement of enthusiasm of the young authors for their work in astronomy and earth science. Two companion books cover physics and electronics, and chemistry and life science." ;
