Dear Science: Advice Column

Question marks symbolsTrying to resuscitate your cellphone that just fell in a puddle – or persuade a doubting Thomas about climate change?

Ask Dear Science, the Washington Post’s new advice column that seeks to use “old-fashioned scientific know-how” to answer one question submitted by readers each week. Scheduled to launch on June 6, the column will tap researchers, delve into journals, and conduct experiments to help readers understand how things work — and how to fix them when they’re broken.

So send us your problems, your queries, your complaints and your concerns, whether they’re as big as the universe or as small as an atom. We can’t wait to help solve them.
