Rubber ducks at sea, a Japanese TV show and food-based art techniques. These might not sound like they have much to do with science, but Hey, There’s Science In This finds an amusing and interesting science story in all of them.
A few dozen short and approachable essays humorously describe surprising friendships between scientists and artists, science history at tourist attractions, and much more. There’s even a poem made entirely out of otherwise tedious-sounding literary titles of scientific articles. Don’t worry, it will all make sense when you read it.
All chapters were originally published on blogs and online publications between 2007 and 2023, but have been rewritten and adapted with the most up-to-date information to create this collection of light science reading that will make your fellow train passengers look up in confusion when you mutter “hey, there’s science in this!”
