THe BoOk PrOJecT Understanding the process of science throught the Eyes of those who make it! The 'linking' of -

and we want to continue doing that THere is no Fixed syllabus
Its purely student centric The introduction to the history of science will enthuse, inspire and motivate you
and help you to realise own intellect and potential to serve their ambition in science. Travel through time via the books will make students realise
- the nature of science,
- the global and local scenario that gave birth to the discoveries, inventions and these extraordinary people
-and, the humane part that brought us to where we are as a society UnderstaNding
THe HistOry oF SciEnce The Project outline Proposed Timeline THis is YoU StEp #1:

- about the topic
-about the protagonist Webinar THE GOD DELUSION- Richard Dawkins FRS, Preface

As a child, my wife hated her school and wished she could leave. Years later, when she was in her twenties, she disclosed this unhappy fact to her parents, and her mother was aghast: 'But darling, why didn't you come to us and tell us?' Lalla's reply is my text for today: 'But I didn't know I could.'

I didn't know I could.

I suspect - well, I am sure - that there are lots of people out there who have been brought up in some religion or other, are unhappy in it, don't believe it, or are worried about the evils that are done in its name; people who feel vague yearnings to leave their parents' religion and wish they could, but just don't realize that leaving is an option. If you are one of them, this book is for you. THE BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO WINNING THE NOBEL PRIZE- Peter Doherty, Preface

The aim of this book is to give a sense of the world of science from both inside and out. Though this account isn’t meant to be an autobiography, I have used episodes from my own life to probe the extraordinary story of Nobel-level science and what shapes and feeds it. This is about a certain type of life that is concerned with asking questions and seeking answers that hold up on further testing and scrutiny. Can we approach the truth, even if it is only a small truth? Of course, research scientists are NOT the only people who question and look for truth and understanding. THE MYSTERIOUS UNIVERSE- James Jean, 1930

Standing on our microscopic fragment of a grain of sand, we attempt to discover the nature and purpose of the universe which surrounds our home in space and time. Our first impression is something akin to terror. We find the universe terrifying because of its vast meaningless distances, terrifying because of its inconceivably long vistas of time which dwarf human history to the twinkling of an eye, terrifying because of our extreme loneliness, and because of the material insignificance of our home in space—a millionth part of a grain of sand out of all the
sea-sand in the world. But above all else, we find the universe terrifying because it appears to be indifferent to life like our own; emotion, ambition and achievement, art and religion all seem equally foreign to its plan. Perhaps indeed we ought to say it appears to be actively hostile to
Life like our own. For the most part, empty space is so cold that all life in it would be frozen; most of the matter in space is so hot as to make life on it impossible; space is traversed, and astronomical bodies continually bombarded, by radiation of a variety of kinds, much of which is probably inimical to, or even destructive of, life.
