PARACHUTE an egg from an upstairs window! DISTIL DNA from a half-eaten banana! SPARK lightning in your mouth! Here are fifty awesome experiments that demonstrate the principles behind the greatest scientific breakthroughs in human history. Astound friends with an experiment that seems to defy the laws of gravity, launch a plastic bottle into the air, peer through a microscope made out of water, prove atomic theory with food colouring - and recreate the Large Hadron Collider using marshmallows! Designed for kids aged nine upwards and using everyday stuff around the house, The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science lets YOU boldly go where the bravest scientists in history have gone before.
