Ask Your Science Questions on Twitter

The Science of EverythingEver wonder how the voice of that radio announcer makes it through your alarm clock in the morning? Or how the remote control opens your garage door? How about what antibiotics really do?

National Geographic’s book, Science of Everything, answers those nagging questions about how things work. With a forward written by former New York Times columnist and Emmy-winning CBS correspondent David Pogue, the book uses plain talk, photography, and everyday examples to explain the science behind the things we take for granted.

Do you have science questions about things you’ve heard in the news, or everyday occurrences? Pogue is ready to provide explanations on Twitter this Friday, 11/1 at 12:30 PM ET. Follow @NatGeoLive to join the conversation and tweet your questions using #BeyondScience.

If you’re in the area, don’t miss Pogue’s National Geographic Live! event in Washington, D.C. on 11/4, where he’ll continue the conversation. Find out more on our event website.

Start tweeting your questions and we’ll see you on Twitter this Friday!
