What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions - Randall Munroe

Randall Munroe, the creator of xkcd.com web comic, has been collecting quirky and unusual questions from his readers for years. His answers to a selection of these queries are now available in What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $24). Munroe tackles such questions as How much Force power can Yoda output? and Can one build a periodic table out of actual elements? The questions are indeed strange, but the science and math are real (references are included), and Munroe’s conclusions are always humorous yet insightful. The quandaries might be low on practical applications, but they are definitely high in wonder and curiosity.
