A series of glasses of transparent liquids is in front of you: but which will quench your thirst and which will kill you? And why? Why does one make us drunk, and another power a jumbo jet? Structured around a plane journey, Mark Miodownik explores the liquids that can bring death and destruction as well as wonder and fascination.
