The Science of The X-files
By pushing science to its furthest, most marvelous extremes, "The X-Files" has captivated us with stories more strange and surreal than we'd ever dreamed possible. But are they as far-fetched as they look? With the help of leading experts, scientist Jeanne Cavelos explores the scientific theories -- and supporting research -- that shed light on some of the series' most bizarre and compelling episodes.Includes scientific examinations of: -- Could a man cause fungi to destroy everything he touched? -- How could a man made entirely of cancer cells grow back his decapitated head?-- What sort of nutrition could be derived from a diet of human livers? -- Could a man bum up in the sun -- simply because he believes he's a vampire? -- How could a salamander hand grow on a man's body? -- Could concentrated human pheromones really make Scully do "the wild thing" with a stranger?
