Prepare to be amazed and educated! A Bee in a Cathedral explains basic scientific truths and principles using the power of analogy. Using classic comparisons (including 'bee in the cathedral' which dramatically conveys the size of the atomic nucleus in relation to the atom as a whole) you will learn: how whirlpools and hurricanes help us understand the formation of galaxies; how DNA chains act just like a zipper; how much blood is produced by a body each day. Written in an entertaining style, A Bee in a Cathedral will appeal to anyone with a thirst for knowledge and an appreciation for science. The aim of the book is to convey basic principles of science in new and exciting ways, describing the unbelievably massive, the inconceivably tiny, and the unfathomably complex in terms that we can all understand, and comparing them to everyday objects and experiences with which we are much more familiar.
