About this book

If you sit still in a quiet room, you might be able to convince yourself that nothing is moving. But air currents are swirling around you. Blood rushes through your veins. The atoms in your chair jiggle furiously. And the planet you are sitting on is whizzing through space 35 times faster than the speed of sound. In Zoom, Bob Berman explores the wondrous and myriad motions that shape every aspect of the universe from the ground up. Spanning astronomy, geology, biology, meteorology and history, he explains how clouds stay aloft, how the earth's rotation curves a ball's flight, how a mosquito's whine is tuned to a perfect A sharp, how the day gets 1/700th of a second longer every century, and much more.
