Fairy Tale Science


ASK Magazine Nov-Dec 2023. Could anyone ever really dance in glass slippers? Spin gold from straw? Or ride a dragon? Can science help?

Fairy tales are fun, fantastical stories usually involving magic or supernatural beings. But even the craziest creatures have some components of reality. In this eye-opening edition of ASK Magazine, you will learn the science behind the magic that makes fairy tales, well, magic!

These might not be questions you ever wondered about when you were reading these famous fairy tales, but once you discover the answers, you’ll wonder why you didn’t because the answers are just as fascinating as the story!
