Leading young scientists, many holding prestigious Royal Society Research Fellowships, describe their research and give their visions of the future. Re-written in a popular and well illustrated style, the articles 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). Carefully selected by the journal's editor, Professor J. M. T. Thompson FRS, topics 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 book conveys the excitement and 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. All are definitive reviews for anyone with a general interest in the future directions of science.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The book coveys the excitement and enthusiasm of the young authors for their work in Astronomy and Earth Science.' Europe & Astronomy
'... you can't deny the excitement the writers felt for what they are doing; and in these secular times such excitement must serve to replace the fear of the Lord as the beginning of wisdom.' Sir Brian Pippard, The Times Higher Education Supplement
'... for those readers who like to get their teeth into something meaty this could be a good investment.' Alan Longstaff, Astronomy Now
