Ingenuity, imagination, and invention : these have been the trademarks of Daily Planet since its beginning. Host Jay Ingram and the Daily Planet team have brought intriguing stories from around the world into your living room for fifteen years, routinely seeking out the most creative, sometimes eccentric, and always enthralling science and technology in existence. Daily Planet : The Ultimate Book of Everyday Science captures everything that has made the tv show enormously popular with millions of viewers worldwide : innovative people, technologies and inventions beyond belief, the extravagance of nature, the incomprehensibilities of the universe – and glimpse of the future.
In what other single book could you read about sports cars made of wood and a one-man recontruction of Stonehenge ? From robotic animals to concrete cloth, from an artist who “hears” colours to the world’s only land tank/party vehicule, and from a rainforest in a raindrop to space exploration, Daily Planet : The Ultimate Book of Everyday Science is all about ingenuity and the desire to know.
