Publisher's Summary

  • Why is it impossible to spin your right foot clockwise while you draw a six with your right hand?
  • Can you extract DNA from a strawberry daiquiri?
  • Would you make love like a praying mantis?
  • Should you book a holiday on Earth 2.0?

The Element in the Room will take you on a rib-tickling, experiment-fuelled adventure to explain everyday science that is staring you in the face. If you are sci-curious, pi-curious or just the-end-is-nigh-curious then this is the book for you.

Steve Mould and Helen Arney are two-thirds of science comedy phenomenon Festival of the Spoken Nerd. As a trio they have appeared on QI, created their own experimental comedy show Domestic Science for Radio 4, toured their stand-up science shows to over 50,000 nerds (and non-nerds) and accumulated millions of views on YouTube.
