Michael Mosley (Blood And Guts) takes an informative and ambitious journey exploring how the evolution of scientific understanding is intimately interwoven with society’s historical path, in this landmark six-part series. He begins by telling the story of one of the greatest upheavals in human history – the realisation that the Earth was not at the centre of everything in the cosmos, but just one of billions of bodies in a vast and expanding universe. This incredibly powerful idea was brought forth by a combination of rapid technological change such as improved telescopic craftsmanship, the fall-out of the Reformation and the collusion of brilliant minds. For three thousand years, human beings have struggled to answer great questions. What’s out there? What is the world made of? How did we get here? Can we have unlimited power? What is the secret of life? Who are we? The Story Of Science is an epic account of the attempt to answer these questions. It is peppered with eccentric characters and eureka moments, such as the astronomer who lost his nose in a duel but helped create a new vision of the cosmos; the alchemist who tried to make gold from human urine and helped established modern chemistry; the Irish doctor who developed a recipe for hot chocolate and helped explain the diversity of the natural world.
