Description
Looking for a way to add some spice to his high school lectures, physics teacher Steve Silverman realized that weird and bizarre true-life stories might capture his students' attention. His anecdotes worked so well, in fact, that Silverman began posting his discoveries to a website he dubbed UselessInformation.org. Well-researched and clearly sourced, these unexpected tidbits of scientific knowledge have gained a wide following. In this book he collects more than 30 of the most fascinating stories he has gathered—tales of forgotten genius, great blunders, and incredible feats of survival, as well as how the refrigerator Einstein helped invent became the basis for cooling nuclear breeder reactors.
