Summary
As a phenomenon that resides everywhere and in everything, energy is best understood by example. Exploring energy shows how it cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed and how plankton and other ancient ocean-dwelling organisms can be used to power your car. Reducing the subject to its essential areas, 30-Second Energy charts fascinating and fundamental topics, from the nuclear fusion reactor at the heart of the sun and civilisation's discovery of our first hands-on energy source in fire almost 400,000 years ago, to the elusive dark energy which makes up most of the content of the universe
