In a continuation of TIME's successful books on science, this volume will range widely through the most captivating topics in nature-astronomy, physics, geology, climate, physiology and more-to present a host of fascinating facts. Each story will contain the scientific explanation for phenomena that defy credulity, from unique animal behaviors to the characteristics of distant galaxies, from amazing aspects of the human mind to the paradoxes of subatomic physics. The book will also include a history of debunked scientific theories, notions once taken for granted that have been shown to be false.
