In the field of science there are often more questions than answers. Curiosity is the root of all discovery...and with "Just Curious About Science, Jeeves," you're likely to make a few new findings of your own. Based on the scientifically stimulating questions culled from the popular Ask Jeeves(R) Web site, "Just Curious About Science" is a treasure trove of information that brings you from the Big Bang -- boom! -- all the way to the high-tech world of today. From cosmic dust to cloning, E=MC2 to E-mail, and microencapsulation to microwaves, you'll expand your scientific know-how to include such subjects as astronomy, biology, kitchen chemistry, physics, meteorology, and more. So whether you're looking to measure the speed of light (about 186,355 miles per second) or solve the mystery of inhaled helium (it's all about good vibrations), look no further than "Just Curious About Science" -- located just 149,597,890 kilometers from the sun.
