Publikace: What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions - Randall Munroe. Randall Munroe left NASA in 2005 to start up his hugely popular

site XKCD 'a web comic of romance, sarcasm, math and language'

which offers a witty take on the world of science and geeks. It now

has 600,000 to a million page hits daily. Every now and then,

Munroe would get emails asking him to arbitrate a science debate.

'My friend and I were arguing about what would happen if a bullet

got struck by lightning, and we agreed that you should resolve it .

. . ' He liked these questions so much that he started up What

If. - If your cells suddenly lost the power to divide, how long would

you survive?

- How dangerous is it, really, to be in a swimming pool in a

thunderstorm?

- If we hooked turbines to people exercising in gyms, how much

power could we produce?

- What if everyone only had one soulmate?

- When (if ever) did the sun go down on the British empire?

- How fast can you hit a speed bump while driving and live?

- What would happen if the moon went away? In pursuit of answers, Munroe runs computer simulations, pores over

stacks of declassified military research memos, solves differential

equations, and consults with nuclear reactor operators. His

responses are masterpieces of clarity and hilarity, studded with

memorable cartoons and infographics. They often predict the

complete annihilation of humankind, or at least a really big

explosion. Far more than a book for geeks, WHAT IF: Serious
