Explaining the unexplainable. Intriguing theories from the peripheries of science.
Following on from his immensely popular The Little Book of Scientific Principles, Theories & Things and The Little Book of Maths, Theorems, Theories & Things, Surendra Verma now takes a look at all things considered unscientific today.
Can nuclear fusion take place in a breaker? Does evolution explain psychology? Will teleportation allow instant travel from Point A to B? Is Vitamin C a miracle cure for the common cold? And will anybody ever invent perpetual motion machine? Are we alone: Smart aliens or silly scientists? Homoeopathy: medical breakthrough or a medical blunder? Will humans merge with machines? Time travel — the next big dimension.
While science may not have all the answers today, neither does any other body of scientists or knowledge. This little book is not about the vagaries of belief and why we believe in weird things; it outlines intriguing propositions, theories and other things from the borderlands of science. Not all concepts presented here could be dismissed as crackpot ideas; some have been proposed by respectable scientists and one day may even become mainstream scientific theories.
