Transcript of Віртуальна виставка "Science is the poetry of reality"

Astronauts blast to the Moon and bring back samples from another world; one person’s heart beats in another’s body; newspapers report work on creating new forms of life in a test tube… These are just some of the most startling of the advances in science that have excited people in the last few decades. Is nature now under human control? The rumblings of an earthquake, the appearance of a new island where only ocean was visible, the discovery of a hitherto unknown form of life in the dark ocean abysses answer that question, once again revealing the power and mystery of nature.
which consists of the 6 volumes, 12 sections
presents the major fields of science and discusses their applications in the world of today.
So, it is the guide to
The New Book of Popular Science.
[In 6 vol.].
Vol. 1. Astronomy. Space Science. Mathematics / [ed. director L. T. Lorimer]. – Danbury : Grolier, Inc., 1996. – 464 p.
Vol. 1. Astronomy & Space Science
No areas of science excite the imagination in the ways that astronomy and space science do. We’ve all dreamed of floating weightlessly through intergalactic space, perhaps visiting the surface of Mars or meeting some unusual extraterrestrial creatures. At the same time, we all enjoy the Earthbound pleasures of astronomy, whether it be a brilliant full moon, a shooting star, a total eclipse, or just a beautiful sunset. The section opens with a look at our universe and what we know about it.

Vol. 1. Mathematics
Each time we pay a bill, count change, weigh ourselves, draw a circle or square, or do anything that involves numbers or shapes, we use mathematics. Mathematics, then, can be defined as the study of numbers and shapes, and their many interrelationships.

The New Book of Popular Science.
[In 6 vol.]. Vol. 2.
Earth Sciences. Energy. Environmental Sciences / [ed. director L. T. Lorimer]. – Danbury : Grolier, Inc., 1996. – 522 p.
Vol. 2. Earth Sciences
Earth Sciences is the study of powerful forces – the forces that build mountains, cause earthquakes, drive hurricanes. It is also the study of gentler events – the changing tides, the tumbling snowflakes, the spectacular aurora. This section brings all these phenomena together in a logical sequence that begins with the origins of Earth, its interior, and its crust.

Vol. 2. Energy
Perhaps the greatest challenge facing us is the quest for sources of energy to power civilization and at the same time preserve Earth for future generations. We open the section on Energy by taking an overall look at how much and in what ways we use energy, at how we now obtain it, and at what our future needs are likely to be. Then we look at the way most of our energy is used - in producing electricity. The section concludes with a full survey of alternative energy sources.

Vol. 2. Environmental Sciences
Will Earth be a suitable home for future generations? In the section on Environmental Sciences, we examine our total environment, or surroundings, and see how the forces of nature and human influence have changed and are continuing to change Earth.
The New Book of Popular Science.
[In 6 vol.]. Vol. 3. Physical Sciences. General Biology / [ed. director L. T. Lorimer]. – Danbury : Grolier, Inc., 1996. – 521 p.
Vol. 3. Physical Sciences
What do all things – living and nonliving alike-have in common? They are all forms of matter – that which occupies space. The different forms of matter possess and can be made to possess energy. Matter and energy are the twin bases of all things. In the Physical Sciences section we study chemistry, “the matter science”, and physics, “the energy science”. We explore matter’s different forms and its basic component – the atom.

Vol. 3. General Biology
What is life? How did it arise and diversify into the countless forms it now takes on land, in water, and even in the air? In the General Biology section we explore the nature of life. We study its simplest and most basic unit – the cell – learning its structure, tracing the steps of its activities, and marveling at its complexity. Finally, we see how life-forms are classified, or grouped.

The New Book of Popular Science
[In 6 vol.]. Vol. 4. Plant Life. Animal Life / [ed. director L. T. Lorimer]. – Danbury : Grolier, Inc., 1996. – 494 p.
Vol. 4. Plant Life
The plant kingdom includes forms from the tiny diatom visible only through a microscope to the mighty redwood trees towering over 300 feet high. In the section on Plant Life we see how these two seemingly diverse forms are related – how they are both plants – and go on to study the characteristics of all plant life.
Vol. 4. Animal Life
The animal kingdom is vast and includes strikingly diverse forms – form tiny one-celled protozoans to highly complex mammals – including people. The section on Animal Life surveys the vast panorama of animal life.

Vol. 5. Mammals. Human Sciences / [ed. director
L. T. Lorimer]. – Danbury : Grolier, Inc., 1996. – 498 p.
Vol. 5. Mammals
Mammals are beautiful, graceful creatures.
Some species have been domesticated by humans, and serve an important role as pets or as sources of food. This section begins with a discussion of mammals and the characteristics they have in common. Then it covers the egg-laying, pouched, and insect-eating mammals. The section concludes with a discussion of primates – the mammal group to which we belong.

Vol. 5. Human Science
The section is of utmost importance to everyone: in covers the human body, medicine, and health. It starts with a discussion of human beings as a species – what makes up different from the lower animals. Then we turn to the structure of the body and the various systems upon which we depend to stay healthy. The section concludes with a discussion of the techniques of alternative medicine.

Vol. 6. Technology. Index / [ed. director L. T. Lorimer]. – Danbury : Grolier, Inc., 1996. – 545 p.
Vol. 6. Technology
Technology brings science to our everyday lives. Each time we turn on a light, use the telephone, watch television, or perform virtually any act, we actually witness thousands of years of technological advances in a actually witness thousands of years of technological advances in a split second. Technology and society have grown in parallel and the Stone Age, Space Age, and other eras of human history take their name from the level of technology achieved at the time.
