Knowledge makes the world go around. Often we just believe those that are smarter than us, because well, they are smarter. But often they are not correct. Television can also be a bad source of science information. For example that trip The Simpsons took to Australia in season 16, where Bart marvels at the fact that water drains counter clockwise down under, opposite to clockwise draining in the USA. Unfortunately this is not true. Or how about the old wives tale that one of the best things you can do for a jellyfish sting is to urinate on it … this is untrue as well. In 60 seconds you can learn a lot about how the world works thanks to these two short 60 second science books.
One of two books in the series, this book explores science myths (e.g. the counter clockwise draining water or urinating on jelly bites).
- Why is the sky blue
- Why does a bee die after stinging, but a wasp doesn’t
- Why doesn’t an expanding population make our world any heavier
These are the fundamental mysteries of life. We think we know the answers, but do we really?
In a spectacular mix of simple explanations and scientific fact this book answers 100 of the worlds most intriguing and interesting questions. Embrace your inner Einstein.
Filled with science facts that you can take pleasure in repeating to your colleagues, family and friends. Now you will finally be the smartest of them all.
