Containing some 500 articles, the set is illustrated with many full-color photographs and illustrations, accompanied by explanatory captions. Interspersed throughout are "Did You Know?" boxes meant to provide information of particular interest. The articles are color-coded by area of interest, covering earth, space, and environmental sciences ("agriculture," "compass," "earthquake" "meteorology," etc.); life sciences and medicine ("AIDS," "biodiversity," "drug industry," "enzyme," etc.); mathematics ("algebra," "chaos theory," "statistics," etc.); physics and chemistry ("carbon," "electric circuit," "nuclear reactor," "superconductivity," etc.); technology ("broadcasting," "guidance system," "motion picture," etc.); and people (with entries on such figures as Albert Einstein, Louis Pasteur, Alessandro Volta, and Gregor Mendel). The final volume contains a general index, a collection of tables, a guide to further study, a list of palaces to visit, a time line of the history of science, and a glossary.
