Why do boomerangs come back? Would parachutists be able to play a game of catch while falling? Why does grilled cheese go stringy? What would happen to a pint of beer in space? Why doesn't cling film cling to metal properly? Why does the wind blow in gusts? A follow-up to the highly successful The Last Word, this new paperback brings you more questions and answers from The New Scientist's popular column. Readers of the leading science weekly are invited to write in with enquiries about everyday scientific phenomena and other readers respond. This new selection of the most interesting examples covers an enormous range of subjects from everyday household products, to plants, animals, the human body, gadgets, and our environment. This is a fun, fascinating, and enlightening read for anyone who asks themselves these questions.
