Mad Science: Einsteins Fridge, Dewars Flask, Machs Speed, and 362 Other Inventions and Discoveries that Made Our World by Alfred, Randy

365 days of inventions, discoveries, science, and technology, from the editors of<i>Wired</i>Magazine.<br /> <br /> On January 30, Rubik applied for a patent on his cube (1975). On the next day, 17 years earlier, the first U.S. Satellite passed through the Van Allen radiation belt. On March 17, the airplane black box made its maiden voyage (1953). And what about today? Every day of the year has a rich scientific and technological heritage just waiting to be uncovered, and<i>Wired</i>s top-flight science-trivia book MAD SCIENCE collects them chronologically, from New Years Day to years end, showing just how entertaining, wonderful, bizarre, and relevant science can be.<br /> <br /> In 2010,<i>Wired</i>s popular This Day in Tech blog peaked with more than 700,000 page views each month, and one story in 2008 drew more than a million unique viewers. This book will collect the most intriguing anecdotes from the blogs run-one for each day of the year-and publish them in a package that will instantly appeal to hardcore techies and curious laypeople alike.<br /> <br
