Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. Youll see the science in everything around (and inside) you, and learn the truth about the most egregious science myths (such as—you cant “sweat like a pig” because pigs dont 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 Earths sudden hot flashes

Foods 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 thats more fi than sci

Ancient astronomers

Know your clouds

And much, much more!

Synopsis:

Find out just how entertaining the universe we live in can be! Uncle John Plunges Into the Universe fights back against every textbook that has ever made science seem boring. For Life Sciences we explore the weirdest solutions that different organisms have invented for the problems of survival. From the denizens of the Amazonian jungle to the microbes inside of your nose, from the giant squid to the prion, there are a vast number of weird biological topics to fascinate our community of bathroom readers. For Earth Sciences we delve into plate tectonics, quicksand, undersea caves, boiling hot geysers, glaciers — this planet does funky stuff. How and why? Peel back the asphalt and concrete and see what is going on down there. In the Space Sciences people are learning about space from bad sci-fi shows! Learn what's really up with gas giants, black holes, asteroid belts, cosmic radiation, and all that.
