How Do You Ex­plain That?

Indwe - - Books - By Danny Fourie

We know that the moon in­flu­ences the tides, but did you know that dur­ing full moon, you al­ways see the same side of it? Or what pre­cisely causes birds not to bump into one an­other when they swerve while fly­ing in a flock? These facts are part of a huge amount of knowl­edge about na­ture, physics and space that the Afrikaans RSG pro­gramme Hoe verk­laar jy dit? has been shar­ing for 37 years. This book, trans­lated from the orig­i­nal, best­selling Afrikaans ver­sion, con­tains a se­lec­tion from the hun­dreds of ques­tions cu­ri­ous lis­ten­ers have been ask­ing the ex­perts to an­swer in or­der to make the world a lit­tle less strange – be­cause not all knowl­edge is ob­vi­ous.
