Harriots theories, inventions, and discoveries were as groundbreaking as they were controversial.

From his daring exploration of the New World to his scientific findings on subjects as diverse as alchemy and the moons of Jupiter, Harriots accomplishments reflect the endless curiosity of a remarkable mind.
