This book is a compendium of essays on various science related topics which are at the cutting edge of modern science and technology. Sixteen different science topics are discussed in the book, which include origin and evolution of the universe, the microscopic world of the atom, unification of the forces of nature, our planet earth and its neighbors, modern developments in synthetic biology, global warming, artificial intelligence and the explosive growth of information technology.

The book exposes its readers having a modest science background to some of the most exciting developments in modern science. Keeping this in view the discussion is kept at a simple level without excessive use of mathematics and abstract concepts. While aiming at simplicity and coherence every effort is made not to compromise on accuracy.

We are living in an era where scientists specializing in a particular area are hardly aware of the happenings in related disciplines. This book aims at bridging this gap.

Finally there are sizable sections of science educated lay public who are curious to understand the how and the why of modern scientific developments at a very basic level. It is hoped that this book will be helpful in satisfying their curiosity.
