It is inhabited by pollen, DNA and viruses - not to mention globules of paint, shampoo, milk and chocolate. Its tiny denizens have one thing in common: they cannot keep still.Physicist Mark Haw tells the pacy story of how scientists finally saw the restless middle world 200 years ago, having ignored it for so long- how, at the beginning of the 20th century, it spectacularly answered Einsteins most basic question about the nature of matter. And how we then ignored it again until the past decade or so. Finally Haw reveals that today understanding the weird, jiggling mesoscale has become central to nanotechnology, medicine and working out the origins of life.
