Description:
There are few times when science is so immediate as when you're in a plane...Acclaimed science writer Brian Clegg shows how you stay up there - but that's only the beginning. Inflight Science explains the ever-changing view, whether it's crop circles or clouds, mountains or river deltas, and describes easy-to-do experiments to show how a wing provides lift or how to calculate the population of the towns you fly over...Packed full of amazing insights from physics, chemistry, engineering, geography and more Inflight Science is a voyage of scientific discovery perfect for any journey - even if it's just in your armchair...'Fitting into that publishing niche somewhere between hard science and Schott's Miscellany that was so successfully exploited by books such as The Cloudspotter's Guide.' The Times..'Catches the current wave of Brian Cox-approved popular science . for those who are interested in the way things work, and have seen the films on offer on board, it's a pleasant way of riding out the bumps.' Rebecca Nicholson, Sunday Times
