Awesome Sauce: What If?
September 10, 2014
Crazy questions, REAL answers, Snark and a Stick Figure Master of Ceremonies….it’s all here!
This is what science is about for me. Asking questions and then sitting down and “Doing the Math”.
The primary goal in any science career is simply to ask new questions about how a familiar system works during everyday maintenance and then how it goes off the tracks during disease or disaster. This methodology applies to all fields; Geology, Astrophysics, Climatology….any “ics or “ology” you can think of.
Mr. Munroe’s site and the book are truly what I hope, in part, this site will be when it grows up: science as a series of questions in search of answers rather than a list of ANSWERS waiting to be memorized.
I haven’t checked to see if there is a speculation about what would happen if you fed a T. Rex to the Sarlacc from Star Wars, as seen on the cover, but I’m willing to waiting because once you open this book you will want to savor each question and then, when all is said and done, maybe ask some new questions of your own.
