Narrator David Stifel switches between the roles of physics lecturer and amused observer of the research on one of physics' most pressing questions: Why do falling cats land on their feet? In both roles, Stifel's voice is clear, making it easier for listeners to grasp complicated science concepts. As the author traces the exploration of the cat question from the eighteenth century to the present, he brings in related concepts such as Earth's wobble, the law of conservation of energy, and Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. More recently, cat-oriented research has been intertwined with developments in space travel and robotics. Listeners are introduced to a lot of physics, and there's always room for a squabble about cats among French physicists. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
