The stories in the book show that Scientists make discoveries by working from accumulative knowledge from all previous discoveries. The last chapter is most shocking to me. The scientists have figured out that our sun is a star of average size and energy among countless stars, and the milkway is of average size among countless galaxies. The most elements in the vast universe is carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen, the elements that make up humans. So it is highly likely that there are countless planets in the universe that have intelligent beings like us....

"The Scientists" outlines many important people going all the way from Calpurnicus to modern quantum physics scientists. Gives detailed description on their lives and findings going in chronological order. Great book, enjoyed it very much.
