THE TIME(LESS) LORD OF SCIENCE, DR KARL KRUSZELNICKI, IS BACK.

No need for the Tardis when you can mind travel through "wibbly-wobbly" theories of Time Travel, how alcohol makes you speak louder, how to tell what part of a movie the audience is watching without looking, and why Americans are no longer the tallest people on Earth. What will the discovery of Gravitational Waves do for you? Why do you sleep badly in an unfamiliar bed?

Why should you exercise before breakfast (not after) to stop weight piling on?

Is Bitcoin the currency of the future? What connects God, caffeine and chocolate? How does streaming a video for an hour use more electricity than running a fridge for a week? What are the secrets of immortal jellyfish and vampires? Are smoothies good for you? And just what is a "vomitorium"?

The Doctor lays it all down - without resorting to a Sonic Screwdriver.

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki

About the Author


Karl’s media career began in 1981, when he started presenting ‘Great Moments In Science ‘ on Double J to pay his way through medical school. Since then, his media career has exploded from radio to include TV, books, newspapers, magazines, scripting, professional speaking, and of course, the Net. Karl made his TV debut in 1985 as the presenter of the first series of Quantum. Since 1986 he has reported science on the Midday Show, Good Morning Australia (including a full-time stint in 1991-2 as the TV Weatherman and science reporter), the Today Show and Channel 7?s breakfast program Sunrise. Along side his fellow geek Adam Spencer, he has written and co-produced two series of Sleek Geeks for ABC TV. Karl also popularises science on ABC radio stations across Australia and, on the BBC, for several hours each week.

In 2012, Asteroid 18412 was named in honour of Dr Karl Kruszelnicki – it was discovered by Robert H. McNaught at the Siding Spring Observatory in Coonabarabran, New South Wales, Australia, on June 13, 1993.

Karl has degrees in Physics and Maths, Biomedical Engineering, Medicine and Surgery and has worked as a physicist, tutor, film-maker, car mechanic, labourer, and as a medical doctor.

He is the author of 34 popular science books, with No. 35 & 36 on the way. Dr Karl is currently the Julius Sumner Miller Fellow at the University of Sydney.
