Synopsis

Plunges into the Universe is your anecdote to boring science text books. Uncle John and his loony lab partners will take you back to the Big Bang and forward to the distant future. You’ll see the science in everything around (and inside) you, and learn the truth about the most egregious science myths (such as--you can’t “sweat like a pig” because pigs don’t sweat). How many amazing facts await your visual cortex in these 494 pages made up of atoms (print version) or bits and bytes (e–book)? As Carl Sagan would have said, “Billions and Billions!” So put on your thinking cap and check out . . .

Pluto denied
Kitchen chemistry
Football gets physics–al
Planet Earth’s sudden hot flashes
Food’s incredible journey…through you
The science of surfing, skating, and snowboarding
How they plugged the hole in the ozone layer
How “defenseless” animals stay alive
Sci–fi that’s more fi than sci
Ancient astronomers
Know your clouds
And much, much more!
