Summary

Does the universe have a shape? What makes sunshine? Do stars explode? How do you build a time machine? Do aliens look like me? When it comes to the big questions about astrophysics, kids go right for the interesting stuff. Professor Mark Brake makes great use of this as he serves up a heaping helping of kid-friendly space science. Through an entertaining Q&A format, hip retro illustrations, mind teasers, quotations, amusing anecdotes, and plenty of great research, kids will get a thought-provoking introduction to the work of great scientific minds including Newton, Galileo, and Einstein while they have their most interesting (and oddball) questions answered in style.
