A NEUTRON WALKS INTO A BAR Can crows recognize human faces? What key does the average housefly hum in? This quirky collection of facts, definitions, explanations, biographies, and jokes is guaranteed to quench a thirst for knowledge, discovery, and humor that's out of the ordinary Did you know that water is the only thing found naturally on earth in each of the three states of matter, or that the Mississippi alligator can stay underwater for 6 hours? This book began its life as Science140, an exciting social media project coordinated by four Irish science communicators and enthusiasts. Since its launch on Twitter in the spring of 2012, thousands of tweets have been collected, each explaining a scientific principle, fact, joke, or biography in 140 characters or less. The tweets collected are on a range of topics from astronomy to zoology, and have been compiled by science enthusiasts, educators, members of the public, and celebrities from all over the world. Neither a textbook nor a definitive guide to science, this a fun way to learn new, interesting, fun, and unusual things about the world we live in.
