On that note, if you're not familiar with the web cartoon xkcd, and its author, Randall Monroe, check it out. He also put out a book titled "Thing-Explainer", using only the 1000 most common English words to explain such scientific concepts or creations as the Saturn V rocket, Big Bang, etc. It's quite something. Dick would be more eloquent, explaining science, but it gets the point across.
