What if? (Non-fiction book)

Aloha Everyone,

This is a unique, one of a kind, and very entertaining book. Written by Randall Munroe, It’s subtitle is “Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions.”

Randall Munroe, a former NASA roboticist left the agency in 2006. Munroe draws comics on the internet full-time. In “What if?” he answers some scientific, technology and others utterly ridiculous or weird speculative questions.

For examples:
Q.  How quickly would the oceans drain if a circular portal 10 meters in radius leading into space were created at the bottom of Challenger Deep, the deepest spot in the ocean?

Q.  Which US state is actually flown over the most?

Q.  What would happen to the Earth if the sun suddenly switched off?

Q.  What if rainstorm dropped all of its water in a single giant drop?
