What If?2: Additional Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions (Paperback)Randall Munroe (author)
From cooling the atmosphere by opening everyone's freezer doors to making a lava lamp out of actual lava, the gleefully eccentric author of What If? tackles more absurd questions from the public using sober and level-headed science.
What If you still had so many more strange questions about the universe?
And what if Randall Munroe, former NASA roboticist and xkcd creator, were prepared to move mountains, fill the solar system with soup and alter the space-time continuum to answer them?
Whether it's how to make a lava lamp out of lava or feeding the inhabitants of New York to a T. Rex, welcome to the weird, wonderful (and sometimes terrifying) world of What If? 2

For 99p, it was a bargain, and thoroughly... More
