Where was the Big Bang? What links the elephant Tusko and Timothy Leary? What is the significance of 6EQUJ5? And how many moons does the earth really have? Brian Clegg here offers a mind-stretching alternative to the typical pub quiz, leaving off the sports, 1980s pop music, and celebrity gossip to focus on science-based questions, presented in two eight-round quizzes. Test yourself on questions like why is the sky blue? Why is it black at night? And what is spaghettification? Turn the page to get the answer immediately, and to explore the subject in more depth. The author of Light Years, Build Your Own Time Machine, and The Universe Inside You, as well as the editor of Britain's online Popular Science magazine, Clegg specializes in making the strangest aspects of the cosmos entertaining and accessible for the general reader.
