About This Item

New York: Walker & Company , 2000. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine complete dustjacket. The author is Charles Howard Candler Professor of Physics at Emory University and here explores how foam - gas bubbles within solids or liquids - has shaped our lives for millennia, clarifying the pioneering roles it plays in science and industry. Ocean foam influences Earth's climate, Fibrin sealant controls bleeding in trauma victims, Aerogel is lightweight enough that an ounce of it contains the area of several football fields and is so strong that it is deployed to collect small particles from a comet and return them to Earth. Incredibly fascinating and most readable. 14. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
