Description

Here's the best that science has to offer: 100 activities guaranteed to amaze and inspire you, hand-picked by New Scientist and introduced by Bob McDonald, the host of CBC's Quirks & Quarks.

Get on a plane and travel to the South Pole to take a sauna and run naked in the snow. Or step out into your backyard and study the starry night sky. Make ice cream with liquid nitrogen, walk on lava, measure the speed of light with chocolate, write your name in atoms, or dare to eat the Viking "delicacy" hakarl (the ingredients will surprise you). At home, halfway across the world, or light years into the sky, the possibilities are endless and this book gives you the back story on them all!
