The very notion of scientific truth is in question. This book aims to offer a constructive response to those who contend that there is no such thing as verifiable objective truth - without which there could be no scientific authority. The reader is given a guided tour of the intellectual structure of physical science and the understanding of reality engendered by modern physics, the most theoretically advanced of the sciences. It explores models, facts, theories, intuition and imagintion, the use of analogies and metaphors, the importance of mathematics and the "virtual" reality of the physics of micro-particles.
