Why does the sky turn green just before a tornado? Why do wintergreen LifeSavers glow in the dark when you bite them? If you are falling in an elevator, should you try to jump up at the last second or lay flat against the floor? How do electric eels produce their electric field? Why is wet sand darker than dry sand? What causes an oasis mirage? Why do stars twinkle? Could you drive a car on a ceiling?Walker, Jearl is the author of 'Flying Circus of Physics ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780471762737 and ISBN 0471762733.
