The Science of Everyday Life
In this brilliant scientific tour of household science, BBC1 One Show resident scientist, writer, prop-builder and allround Science Bloke Dr Marty Jopson addresses conundrums such as: What really makes cakes rise? Why do soap bubbles burst? And how you get the quartz out of a clock using a hammer? The book that accompanies this talk serves as a guide to life with the cure for a dribblesome teapot, the solution to shocks from your car and why any of this matters at all. Answers will be provided, electrical devices dismantled and mess created in the name of science.
