    What is space? It isn't a question that most of us normally stop to ask. Space is the venue of physics; it's where things exist, where they move and take shape. Yet over the past few decades, physicists have discovered a phenomenon that operates outside the confines of space and time.

    We're living in the midst of a scientific revolution that's captured the general public's attention and imagination. The aim of this new revolution is to develop a "theory of everything," a set of laws of physics that will explain all that can be explained, ranging from the tiniest subatomic particle to the universe as a whole. Here, readers will learn the ideas behind the theories and their effects upon our world, our civilization, and ourselves.

    Planetary scientists have laid out five goals for exploring the solar system: monitor the Earth's climate, defend against asteroids, seek out new life, explain the genesis of planets, and leave the solar system. Learn more in this article, "To the Moon and Beyond", from the October 2007 edition of Scientific American.
