Did you ever wonder if it's possible to fry an egg on the pavement if it's hot enough? Why Pluto is no longer a planet?  What's the largest flower in the world?

Everyday Mysteries http://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/mysteries/archive.html will help you get the answers to these and many other of life's most interesting questions through scientific inquiry. In addition, you'll be introduced to the Library of Congress' rich collections in science and technology.
