內容簡介

不可言喻的科學:重力、相對論和其他瘋狂的科學點子
快速理解各種科學理論的入門指南

磁鐵是如何產生磁力?到底相對論在說些什麼?光是由波動還是粒子組成?懸崖上的山羊又和原子結構有什麼關聯?身處充斥智慧型手機、人工智慧、超級電腦和其他前衛科技現代,多數人仍缺少許多過往曾推動新興科技的基本科學理論及知識。但對作者來說,科學一點也不複雜,只要理解背後的故事和人物組成,你也能快速搞懂科學理論。例如為何海盜總是戴著眼罩?其實和光線如何通過視網膜有關;海盜從甲板進入船艙時,只要摘下被眼罩遮住的眼睛就能快速適應黑暗。作者透過各種歷史小故事和簡易明瞭的說明解釋科學,不論你是對科學一竅不通,或是專業科學研究人員,本書將以各種有趣的案例讓你重新感受科學的奇妙與美好,探索宇宙的奧妙。

How do magnets work? What is the theory of relativity all about? Is light made of waves or particles? And how on earth can a levitating goat teach us about atomic structure? In this age of smartphones, artificial intelligence, supercolliders, supercomputers and other cutting-edge technology, we've lost touch with many of the most basic science concepts that launched our information age. For Bruce Benamren, science is about stories and characters. Why, for instance, did pirates wear eye patches? That's all to do with how the retina processes light. Pirates running down to the gun deck would have no time to let their eyes get used to the dark, so they kept one eye gun-deck ready. Bruce isn't pretending that science isn't tricky, but in simple, maths-free explanations and just-the-good-parts historical recaps, he shows us that the greatest scientific discoveries and theories don't have to remain beyond our grasp. Whether you haven't picked up a test tube since school and feel like you're missing out on something marvellous, or you're a professor who wants to look at the world with starry-eyed wonder again, How to Speak Science is a witty yet deeply revelatory exploration of the essential mysteries of the universe. Because if a goat can explain scientific theory, you can too.
