In its fifty stories it covers everything from aircraft carriers made of ice, to the origins of the omnibus. We’ll toy with Roman turbines, and Greek computers, look at Renaissance hypertext and have arguments with Americans over the shape of our lightning conductors. We’ll shake Scotland with earthquakes and build cars out of beans. But most of all we’ll celebrate the joys and perils of living in an engineered world.
