Summary
From what actually happened in the Big Bang to the accidental discovery of post-it notes, science is packed with surprising discoveries. Did you know, for instance, that if you were to get too close to a black hole it would suck you up like a noodle (it's called spaghettification), why your keyboard is laid out in QWERTY (it's not to make it easier to type) or whether the invention of the wheel was less important to civilisation than the bag (think about it). 'New Scientist' does. And now they and the New York Times' graphics editor Jennifer Daniel want to take you on a whistlestop journey from the start of our universe to our planet and life to civilisation, knowledge ending up with technology
