We've grown so used to living in a world filled with wonders, we sometimes forget to wonder about them. What creates the wind? Do fish sleep? Why do we blink? Too often, the answers are hazy, or shrouded in technical language. Larry Scheckel, however, not only knows the answers, he knows how to describe them in clear, uncomplicated ways. A physics and aerospace science teacher whose students tried to stump him for over 38 years, Scheckel is a master explainer, and here he discusses things we've all wondered—about the human body, earth science, astronomy, chemistry, physics, technology, zoology, music—and some big questions like "Are we alone in the universe?"
