A birthday present from a thoughtful friend, complete with a TARDIS bookmark I m reading it now as part of the Genreland challenge for January 2018 time travel.I loved the RI lectures as a kid popular science lectures delivered in the Christmas holidays to an audience of appreciative schoolchildren in the lecture theatre and on TV My only disappointment with this is that there aren t many from my childhood nothing between 1969 and 1977, and then until 1990 Lovely archival notes lecture notes and [...]
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, having been a keen follower of the Christmas lectures for many years.The history clearly set out, and the changes in perceptions of what may or may not be possible in the future are fascinating.The book is written for a general audience, following the intentions of the lectures.I was, however, surprised to find errors in the book that no one else seems to have noticed, or at least reported in the reviews I have read.On page 33, where Dewar s demonstration of putti [...]
Exactly what it says on the box Swift retellings of Christmas lectures from the royal institute Spurred my amateur interest for topics such as Gravity, Physics and the great dark beyond Definitely not for those with higher knowledge on these topics as the oversimplification and shortening of some lectures could become frustrating Use as a stepping stone for other fleshed out books on whatever topics happen tickle your fancy.
A delightful compilation of select Christmas Lectures from the RI, focusing on space and time The series started in 1825 as one of the first steps of science communication bridging important scientific ideas to the public Every chapter, while travelling through the century, shows how far we ve developed and built our ideas in this very important field As Isaac Newton puts it standing on the shoulders of giants.While reading through the recap of these lectures, it makes me wish I was there with t [...]
A lovely thing, and a great journey through the Christmas Lectures.

A brief introduction into the advances of science as related to all things space, this series of lecture summaries does its job to make us want to explore I ve thoroughly enjoyed reading one or two chapters every night for a few days, and falling asleep with dreams of the stars Also impressive to see how quickly science has progressed from the speaker in the first lecture prophetising that humans will never reach the moon, to the final lecture featuring a video chat with Tim Peake on the ISS , [...]
A swift and sweet look at a selection of the Royal Institution s Christmas Lectures Each lecture series summary takes up some fifteen pages and, despite being aimed at children, they eloquently explain some of the most complex and important scientific theories over the 200 years the lectures span.
