The Science of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials

Mary Gribbin, John Gribbin


Philip Pullman’s His darkish fabrics trilogy is popular for its secret and magic. What’s the reality in the back of all of it? Is the golden compass really established in technology? How does the sophisticated knife lower via something? may there be a bomb just like the one made with Lyra’s hair? How do the Gallivespians’ lodestone resonators quite paintings? And, in fact, what are the darkish fabrics? Drawing on string concept and spacetime, quantum physics and chaos thought, award-winning technology writers Mary and John Gribbin display the genuine technology at the back of Philip Pullman’s bestselling fable trilogy in unique and crystal-clear prose.
