Description
From New Scientist magazine, the geeky lads who also brought you Does Anything Eat Wasps?; Why Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze?; and Do Sparrows Like Bach?, here is another piquant exploration of the weird and wonderful aspects of science. What's the storage capacity of the human brain in gigabytes? Why is frozen milk yellow? Why do flamingos stand on one leg? And why can't elephants jump? Is it because they are too large or heavy, or is it because their knees face the wrong way? (Or do they just wait until no one's looking?) This is popular science at its most absorbing and enjoyable.
