The color of nature by Pat Murphy( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the colorful secrets of the enigmatic Aurora Borealis or the ethereal shimmer of a floating soap bubble? The Color of Nature - from San Francisco's acclaimed hands-on science museum, the Exploratorium - tackles the conundrum of color. An engaging text by Pat Murphy and extraordinary photographs by William Neill and other acclaimed nature photographers clearly illustrate how colors gracefully illuminate our world. We may be accustomed to thinking of color as nature's home-decorating technique, but the colors we see - in the yellow petals of a daffodil and the blue flicker of a flame - exist as essential tools of nature and are the result of fascinating physical phenomena. Occasionally, after a storm when the corner of our eye captures the elusive rainbow and the leaves of a tree take on a glowing green hue, we stop and wonder at these pure, visual pleasures

And then you're dead : a scientific exploration of the world's most interesting ways to die by Cody Cassidy( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What would happen if you stuck your head into a nuclear particle accelerator? What if you jumped into an interstellar black hole, or slipped out of a deep-sea submarine wearing only a pair of Speedos? In And Then You're Dead: The world's most interesting ways to die, we'll give serious answers to these horribly interesting questions in a way a layperson can understand. Illustrated with straight-forward technical art and leavened by small doses of dry humor, the book will be both scientifically informative and gruesomely entertaining. Relying on the deeply human observation that things which actually happen compel little interest, there will be no discussion of heart attacks or car wrecks. But there will be plenty to learn about those people unfortunate enough to get swallowed by a whale
