Find out how humans changed the world forever in this amazing story told through six iconic objects: the car, the airplane, the smartphone, the rocket, the robot, and the telescope.

Exploring how science, invention, and technology have built upon one another to alter the course of history, this fascinating journey reveals how each object represented the culmination of a dream-to explore, to communicate, or to better understand the universe. Full of unintended consequences and incredible connections, the story profiles the visionaries who invented each object, and includes little-known anecdotes about surprising accidents, colorful characters, and moments of joy as well as times of despair.
