Understanding the World By the Way It Comes Apart Did you know& #8212 & #8226 It took more than an iceberg to sink the Titanic. & #8226 The Challenger disaster was predicted. & #8226 Unbreakable glass dinnerware had its origin in railroad lanterns. & #8226 A football team cannot lose momentum. & #8226 Mercury thermometers are prohibited on airplanes for a crucial reason. & #8226 Kryptonite bicycle locks are easily broken. & #8220 Things fall apart& #8221 is more than a poetic insight& #8212 it is a fundamental property of the physical world. Why Things Break explores the fascinating question of what holds things together (for a while), what breaks them apart, and why the answers have a direct bearing on our everyday lives. When Mark Eberhart was growing up in the 1960s, he learned that splitting an atom leads to a terrible explosion& #8212 which prompted him to worry that when he cut into a stick of butter, he would inadvertently unleash a nuclear cataclysm. Years later, as a chemistry professor, he remembered this childhood fear when he began to ponder the fact that we know more about how to split an atom than we do about how a pane of glass breaks. In Why Things Break, Eberhart leads us on a remarkable and entertaining exploration of all the cracks, clefts, fissures, and faults examined in the field of materials science and the many astonishing discoveries that have been made about everything from the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger to the crashing of your hard drive. Understanding why things break is crucial to modern life on every level, from personal safety to macroeconomics, but as Eberhart reveals here, it is also an area of cutting-edge science that is as provocative as it is illuminating.
