Product Details

Praise

“In a world full of magic, there are still scientific rules that this alternate universe plays by. Rebecca Thompson guides the reader through what we know and what might be possible based on known science, blurring the mental lines we’ve drawn to separate fantasy from reality.” – Ethan Siegel, theoretical astrophysicist; author of Treknology and Beyond the Galaxy

“Even if you can’t tell a White Walker from a White Russian, you’ll find Becky Thompson’s Fire, Ice, and Physics to be endlessly rewarding. From how to build an ice wall to how to make Valyrian steel to the aerodynamics of dragons, this fun and engaging book is full of clearly explained physics and real-world applications. I couldn’t put it down!” – James Kakalios, Taylor Distinguished Physics Professor at the University of Minnesota; author of The Physics of Superheroes

“From the biophysics of dragon fire to the engineering of ice walls, this book gives all the material you need to elevate those Game of Thrones conversations to even higher levels.” – Clifford Johnson, Professor of Physics, University of Southern California; author of The Dialogues: Conversations about the Nature of the Universe
