bookshelves: science
Read in August, 2007

Interesting recap on lots of stuff I already knew from watching BBC documentaries, and some stuff I didn't know before... like why moonshine (from the moon, guys) makes everything look silver: its reflective light hits earth at just under the threshold for color! That's why!

Other than that, I suspect the book will become outdated in about 10 years, albeit there's not a heck of a lot of conjecture.
