Why do cheetahs run so fast? -Shanyu, 9, London, UK
Cheetahs are in really good shape. Not only are they good runners, but the actual shape of their body helps them move at incredible speeds.
As the fastest cats on the planet, they can reach 75 mph. Whenever I lace up my shoes and run, I can only reach about 30 mph. Us tabby cats are pretty quick, but not quick enough to outrun a cheetah.
The difference has to do with a cheetah’s amazing anatomy—everything from its head and skeleton to its muscles and feet.
That’s what I found out from my friend … » More …

Why do we hear the sea in a seashell? -Steve, Minnewaska School, Minnesota
Whenever us cats go to the beach, we tend to keep a safe distance from the water and like to explore the shore. I once stumbled upon a big, beautiful pink and white seashell.
When I put my ear up to it, I heard the familiar sound of whooshing waves. While there wasn’t actually an ocean inside, I figured the sound had to be coming from somewhere. So, I decided to investigate. You can try it out, too.
First, close your eyes and listen without a shell. Well, I suppose you … » More …

Why do onions make us cry? -Kera, 5, Lawrenceville, GA
Try as we might, it can be hard to hold back tears while chopping up onions.
My friend Lindsey du Toit knows the feeling. She’s a scientist at Washington State University and works with lots of onions. Her research helps farmers grow good vegetables for us to eat.
“It’s not the onion itself that makes us cry,” she explained, “but a chemical reaction that starts when you cut into it.”
I wondered how exactly this chemical reaction worked. To find out, we set up a microscope in her lab and chopped up a Walla … » More …
