AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From the furthest reaches of the universe to the microscopic world of our genes, science offers writers the kind of scope other subjects simply can't match. Good writing about science can be moving, funny, exhilarating or poetic, but it will always be honest and rigorous about the research that underlies it.

'Now in its sixth year, The Best Australian Science Writing 2016 brings together knowledge and insights from Australia’s brightest thinkers as they explore the intricacies of the world around us. This lively collection of essays covers a wide range of subjects and challenges our perceptions of the world and how we exist within it.' (Publication summary)

Works about this Work

Science under the Microscope John Ross , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: The Weekend Australian , 14 January 2017; (p. 16)
'Just a tiny tweak of the carbon atom and it all could have been so different. Geraint Lewis’s take on that age-old question — why are we here? — has an elemental specificity about it. Other writers may riff on the cosmic good fortune of living on a planet in its sun’s Goldilocks zone, where water can exist in liquid form and with a magnetic field to shield us from space radiation. Lewis zeros in on some even more fundamental flukes in his essay You Wouldn’t Bet on It: The Cosmic Crapshoot of Life.' (Introduction)
