Then strap on your hat for adventure and learn how planet Earth has been modified by the crazy chemistry of birdbrained biology and foolhardy physics of humans. The Young Scientist’ s Guide to Faulty Freaks of Nature is your guide to some of the strangest science ever seen, and in it you’ ll discover that some of the things scientists told you were “ wrong” were actually right!
