The pace of life is such that we rarely have the luxury to stop and think. We take so much on trust or assume that we know why something happens or the way things work. It is only when we stop and think that nagging doubts or questions creep into our subconscious? For those of us blessed (or is it cursed?) with an enquiring mind, once the seed of a question has been planted, we need to find the answer. The purpose of this book is to shed light on some of those nagging and irritating questions. There is no overarching design behind the fifty questions. They are just some of the topics that have puzzled me, a self-confessed ignoramus on all matters scientific, over the years; and I have now had the time to find the answers. Fortunately, greater brains than mine have grappled with some of the issues and carried out bizarre experiments or made quantum leaps of logic to push out further the frontiers of human knowledge. This book celebrates this quest and thirst for knowledge.
