Questions & Answers

Q: What is the doctrine of signatures in relation to medicine?

The doctrine of signatures suggests that a plant is safe and useful if it looks like the thing it is meant to treat. However, this practice is not scientifically reliable and may have only been used as a mnemonic tool.

Q: Why do certain caterpillars unfurl tentacles when yelled at?

The exact reason is unknown, but scientists believe that unfurling tentacles helps the caterpillars blend in with flowers or protect their main body from being eaten by predators.

Q: How did the Krakatoa volcano eruption in 1883 contribute to the discovery of noctilucent clouds?

The eruption launched dust and ash into the atmosphere, creating cool and dry conditions for noctilucent clouds to form. It was likely the first recorded sighting of these clouds.

Q: Why do sky watchers dread seeing make rias clouds?

Make rias clouds, also known as type 2 polar stratospheric clouds, can lead to damage to the ozone layer. Chlorine-containing gases can react with the clouds, creating chlorine atoms that can harm the ozone layer.
