A Journey Through Transportation
From Hot Lava to A Spy RocketBook - 2017
Follow The Link: A Journey Through Transportation takes the reader on a journey through a network of knowledge down the centuries. It explains how we figured out the way to unlock the materials found in nature and then put them to work to transport us wherever we want to go. Cold rocks were turned into hot metals, invisible forces were picked up by carved stone-and sand and soot were used to make the toughest spacecraft ever. Find out about lava bombs, lost cities, lodestones and magnets, how the pyramids were made, who invented the coach trip, and why plumbers are called plumbers in this fantastic journey through the history of transport.
