Publicly-accessible sites of scientific interest are often neglected in traditional travel guides. From CalTech to the Miller Coors Brewery, this guide showcases dozens of physics- and chemistry-related sites across the U.S. Nickell, who teaches physics at the high school and college levels in Indianapolis, presents entries on specific sites and generic topics (e.g., energy, universities, museums, industry). The guide includes photos of sites and scientists in the field, a state-by-state list of sites, visiting information, and further resources.
