Summary "Welcome to Corpse Talk, the chat show with a difference - all of the guests are dead! Meet your host, comic book artist Adam Murphy, as he interviews eighteen ground-breaking scientists throughout history. Discover what happened to Galileo when he suggested that the Earth goes around the Sun, and why Archimedes jumped out of his bath and ran naked through the streets shouting "Eureka!" This graphic novel answers all your questions about the lives of famous scientists from history and introduces you to some you may not have heard of, such as brilliant dinosaur expert Mary Anning. Bold and expressive illustrations by Adam and Lisa Murphy bring historical events to life, literally, while humorous text makes learning about history and science fun. Full pageillustrations give more detail on the science behind the individual stories, with special features including a map of the Solar System, an illustration of a butterfly's life cycle, and a diagram showing how your body fights infection. There's even a fun science experiment that you can try yourself! Whether you're a budding scientist or just love a good story, this graphic novel will not fail to inspire and make you laugh."-- Provided by publisher.
