    Science history mixed in with science experiments and application can set the stage for catastrophe. Join the science journey from pre-history to present day as you learn about scientists and events that had catastrophic potential but the outcome of greatness. This 300+ page, hardcover book holds 34 chapters and 50 experiments taking you from Stone Age tools and the discovery of fire to the Hadron Collider in 2008. Read with a discerning mind as you witness accounts that are based in fact and theory and do experiments that apply data and concepts. Some experiments are as simple as buying a package of Wintergreen Lifesavers© to learn about lightning to making a soda bottle rocket as you try to understand Robert Goddard's thinking. Items for experiments can be found around your house or at your local retailer, and are coded as to the amount of risk (amount of adult supervision). A list of materials and step-by-step instructions (with visuals) are included in each chapter. Have some fun and learn about 'dangerous' scientific discoveries like smashing atoms, using lasers, black holes, and x-rays. This book is for your 'daring young scientist.' ~ Donna
