Find out what it takes to move at extreme speeds, what g-force does to the human body and some truly impressive land, sea and air speed records. Uncover how shape of an object affects push and pull forces, such as thrust and drag, and how forces are used every day in all kinds of ways. And find out about one of the most powerful forces of all – gravity.
The Extreme Science series looks at extreme qualities and experiences, and how things have evolved and adapted to reach their extreme state and how we can identify scientific information from this. Presented in a highly graphic and accessible way, these books will appeal to visual learners and reluctant readers, and are aimed at children aged 9 and up.
