The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science

The spread of disease using body glitter with an experiment inspired by Edward Jenner the vaccination pioneer who's credited with saving lives than any other person in history Rediscover the wheel and axle with the ancient Sumerians and perform an astounding experiment demonstrating the theory of angular momentum Build a simple telescope just like Galileo's and find the four moons he discovered orbiting Jupiter an act that helped land him in prison Take a less potentially catastrophic approach to electricity than B.

Summary The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science

It’s never been important to engage a child's scientific curiosity and Sean Connolly knows just how to do it with lively hands on seemingly dangerous experiments that pop ooze crash and teach Now the author of The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science takes it one step further He leads kids through the history of science and then creates amazing yet simple experiments that demonstrate key scientific principlesTame fire just like a Neanderthal with the Fahrenheit 451 experiment Round up all your friends and track. If you are reading this book take my warning This is just about as clickbait as a book can get Now let me clear this up the book might be good if you are into learning all the science and history behind certain things but if like me you are in it for fun science experiments like the name would suggest then you will be sorely disappointed First of all it blatantly lies about certain things such as raising the dead which is never once mentioned throughout And others like splitting atoms just mention famous scientists doing it and never even attempts to give you a watered down version of it Next I would like to discuss the Potentially Catastrophic phrase clearly designed to grab in viewers thinking that they will be daredevils The most Catastrophic this book gets is when you are using light fire or just sitting outside in the sun And for some reason this book counts its daringness in nukes and if something has no risk it still gets a nuke I would be fine with this book had it not been for the clearly attention grabbing Potentially Catastrophic which is not delivered on Some experiments can be very fun such as the rocket one but others tell you to go to a theme park or put 2 eggs on a sheet I did like the history and learning aspect but I came for the full package of the experiments too Whether you do them or not not one will be potentially catastrophic unless a slight risk of stains is deserving of a 35 on the danger scale I would not be ranting about this if he had called it What really happens a book about the history of science with fun experiments along the way or something similar Yes it is partly my fault for wishing to pick up a book based solely on its title but I still believe a book should deliver on these fronts I was unsatisfied which a good book should not do The front and back cover elude to some gigantic payoff but you will very uickly see how it does not live up to the hype and falls flat in most areas I want a book called Potentially Catastrophic Science Experiments to make me feel like a daredevil who s taking risks not someone reading about people who took daring risks In the same vein as how good mystery books make you feel like you are carried away from your potentially mundane life to solve a crime this book should make me feel like I am one of these scientists doing daring experiments that could have changed everything Yes I was partly dissatisfied because I was very hyped but I am not much to blame when the front cover makes it sound amazing All in all this book will deliver on some fronts if you do not go in hyped and ready for potentially catastrophic experiments but for most including me it falls flat in what makes a good experiment book and is hyped up for almost nothing But that is just my opinion and everyone is entitled to their own so don t let me stop you from reading it Just know that if you are going in expecting what the name suggests you might be disappointed

    It was awesome A mixture of science and history because it told you the history of the science experiment who did it who made the break through and then it gave you a couple of experiment based on the theory of the original some of which were potentially catastrophic
