Gbur explores how attempts to understand the cat-righting reflex have provided crucial insights into puzzles in mathematics, geophysics, neuroscience, and human space exploration. Discover how the solution stumped brilliant minds and how it helped solve other seemingly impossible puzzles.

As someone who isn't interested in physics, I found the talk/presentation fascinating. I have ordered the book. Thank you for making physics accessible! The slides were great! Thank you!!!
