It's wormholes, alien technology, warp drive engines, spying tree ornaments, and organ replacements from robotic surgeons.
Mone takes current science, stuff that is already in use, or being experimented with, and shows how Santa does it all from living so long to getting around the world. This isn't science-fiction, but actual science explained in such a way that even a boneheaded layman like me can understand it.
This is a lot of fun, science you can laugh about.
