Description

Told through the fascinating ‘diary’ of the Universe itself, along with astronaut Tim Peake and a host of expert space STEM characters, this book takes children on a mind-blowing adventure to understand some of the REALLY BIG QUESTIONS about how our incredible universe came to be.

How old is the universe? How hot was the Big Bang? How are stars made? What happens when galaxies collide? What is a Black Hole? Would you like to eat Cosmic Soup? (Answer: No) Does extra-terrestrial life exist? What is the future of Planet Earth? Will humans ever live on another planet?

The fascinating science behind some of these questions is explaining by STEM characters who occupy key space jobs – the space geologist, the cosmologist, the quantum physicist, the astronomer, and of course, the astronaut – who distil complex subjects with humour and playfulness, appealing to a kids hungry to know more about space, the universe and our place in it.
