Have you ever wondered why things drop to the ground instead of float or fly? Or how a heavy satellite can orbit Earth without crashing into it? From Copernicus and Kepler to Galileo and Newton, the scientific laws that show how and why things move are explored.
Have you ever seen a magician make something disappear and question if anything could really just vanish? Do you know why the periodic table is set up the way it is? From Lavoisier and Joule to Dalton and Mendeleyev, take a look at the basic principles of matter and thermodynamics in a fun and exciting way.
Do you ever wonder why it seems like you are not moving even though you are standing on a planet that moves through space? How does matter turn into energy? From Lavoisier to Einstein, Planck, and Bohr, the basic principles of modern physics are revealed in an exciting and appealing way.
Do you know why a 10-ton boat floats but a tiny pebble sinks? Or why a hot air balloon will rise, but when you inflate a balloon it drops to the ground? From Archimedes and Boyle to Pascal and Charles, discover the basic principles of fluid mechanics in a refreshing and fun way.
Did you know that both electricity and light move in waves, like water does? What does electricity have to do with magnets? From Benjamin Franklin and Charles de Coulomb to Georg Ohm and James Joule, readers will be introduced to the basic principles of light, electricity, and magnetism in an illuminating way.
