The Science of Rick and Morty - What Earth's Stupidest Show Can Teach Us about Quantum Physics, Biological Hacking and Everything Else in Our Universe
Learn about quantum physics, evolutionary biology and many of modern science's big questions through Rick and Morty. What is concentrated Dark Matter? Can idiot brainwaves disguise genius ones? Are you living in a simulation operating at 5% capacity? Rick and Morty may seem like the most idiotic show on TV today, but few know that a lot of its crazy adventures are based on real-life theories and cutting-edge research. Using the biology, chemistry and physics of the series, expert science writer Matt Brady explains the biggest questions occupying the greatest minds today, including: can we hack memory, will we ever be able to alter our basic intelligence, how far will we be able to go with cloning, could we travel to parallel universes, what energy could you get from a microverse battery and can you control a cockroach's nervous system with your tongue. So, become less Morty and more Rick with this wander through the portal of modern-day science. Or just go back to laughing at the stupid jokes.
