Just beneath the surface of our ordinary lives, strange phenomena lurk. Exciting physics doesn't only show up in the Big Bang, or a black hole, or in the guts of giant particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider - it's all around us. Beginning at sunrise, Chad Orzel embarks upon a fascinating tour of the exotic science that underlies each moment of our day. Did you know your alarm clock held secrets about quantum mechanics? And that the GPS on your phone has a built-in correction for the effects of relativity? In this book, the ordinary becomes extraordinary, everything is possible and the day's end will find us dazzled.
