YA--Twenty essays, divided into four categories--medical advances, great mysteries, amazing creatures, and fragile earth--look at recent strides in neonatology, superconductors and laser use in neurosurgery, and physics in daily life; history of the dinosaurs, stone carvings, and lines of the ancient Nazca in South America; endangered species and dolphins; and rainforests, volcanoes, and pollution. This companion to the PBS program of the same name debunks the old lament that everything worth knowing is known and, in the process, expands YAs' understanding of some of the frontiers of today's scientific research. Text and visuals are sufficiently detailed for reports and sufficiently engaging for pleasure reading.
