About this book
Subtitled, "The Strange & Wonderful Things That Happen When Scientists Break Free". Science can tell us great things about the universe; it can also be an excuse to give hallucinogenic drugs to blind people. This explores the margins of science and the real scientific breakthroughs that come from the most surprising and unpromising work.
Part of the "New Scientist" series, this book investigates everything from what it's like to die, to exploding trousers and recycled urine.
