9780717212262: The New Book of Popular Science, Year 2008 Edition Set
From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–10—Libraries that did not purchase the 2006 edition of this essential resource get another tempting chance. As before, each volume of the set is devoted to either one or several related areas of science and closes with a comprehensive index. The latter comes in handy, as cross-references are rare and all of the articles are lengthy surveys, arranged topically rather than alphabetically within their respective sections. Though nearly all of the many contributors sport advanced degrees, the presentation is aimed at lay readers-albeit serious ones, as even a glance at the "Mathematics" section or the "Particle Physics" or "Musical Sounds" articles quickly demonstrates—and is well supplied with informative color photos and charts. Along with hundreds of small changes plus updated tables of Nobel Prize winners, space missions, and the like, new entries covering "Portable Media Players" and "Scientific Illustration," and information on computer graphics have been added. There is an online version available (for a fee). No public library or school collection designed to support active, extensive enquiry in the sciences from middle and upper grade students can be considered complete without this or the previous edition.—John Peters, New York Public Library
