Smashing Atoms! Making Gunpowder! Firing Rockets! Using Lasers! Raising the Dead! G-Forces, X-Rays, Black Holes, DNA and much more! Einstein, Galileo, Newton ... and now YOU! PARACHUTE an egg from an upstairs window! DISTIL DNA from a half-eaten banana! SPARK lightning in your mouth! Here are fifty awesome experiments that demonstrate the principles behind the greatest scientific breakthroughs in human history. Astound friends with an experiment that seems to defy the laws of gravity, launch a plastic bottle into the air, peer through a microscope made out of water, prove atomic theory with food colouring - and recreate the Large Hadron Collider using marshmallows! Designed for kids aged nine upwards and using everyday stuff around the house, The Book of Potentially Catastrophic Science lets YOU boldly go where the bravest scientists in history have gone before.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
