The Invisible War: Interactive Digital Edition

9.95

This new interactive* digital edition of The Invisible War is in PDF format, for reading on digital devices, such as desktop/laptop computers and tablets.

*When you click on the numbered circles that appear throughout the story, they will take you to another page with additional information about what is going on. When you have finished reading, another link will take you back to the story.

The 20Mb file size maintains fantastic resolution for viewing on screens, while not being too large for downloading.

We also have teaching resources for Science, History and English teachers - and for general use at home - available for free download.

Illustrated by Australian comic legend Ben Hutchings, The Invisible War is inspired by very new research into tiny viruses called bacteriophage (literally meaning ‘bacteria eaters’). Never heard of them? Well, don’t bother looking with your eyes, because they’re only 100 nanometers long. Bacteriophage are the most prolific life-forms and the most successful predators on Earth. Trillions of these tiny viruses call your body home, living alongside the trillions of bacteria they prey upon.

In an unlikely twist, US scientists recently discovered how these alien-looking viruses are actually the good guys in our bodies, forming a protective symbiotic barrier in our mucus against pathogenic bacteria. The Invisible War explores this ancient symbiosis, and how these smallest of friends can protect their human hosts. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction…
