What if you were driving your car at the speed of light and you turned on your headlights, what would happen?
What If Scientific Answers To Absurd Questions may not answer that question, but it does consider curious and sometimes bizarre questions. You will find yourself going back to this book over and over skimming through answers to questions like, Is it possible to get your teeth so cold they would shatter when you drink hot coffee?
To find answers to these questions and others, author Randall Munroe queries computer simulations, dives into stacks of declassified military research records, solves differential equations, and consults with nuclear reactor operators. His conclusions are a treasure trove of clarity and hilarity.
What If Scientific Answers To Absurd Questions is required reading for those with a loose imagination and a strong desire for answers.
