Any aspiring astronauts could definitely benefit from having this in their collection.
Fun, and will no doubt help inquisitive children learn a bit more about the 'world' of space.
Ostensibly aimed at children by way of its bright and colourful style, in truth there’s a lot here for adults who haven’t retained everything they learned at school... Any aspiring astronauts could definitely benefit from having this in their collection.
I was surprised to learn so much from this book. What I really like about it is that it’s full of unexpected things, it doesn’t shy away from discussing even some of the big questions that we don’t know the answers to just yet. I love that it talks about how astronomers figure things out. For example, how do we know what the sun is made out of in the inside? – we can’t go there and dig a hole, we have to use all sorts of other clever methods. Science is not just facts, it’s a process, and this book addresses all of that in a very engaging way.
Imagine a bunch of adults huddled around a book for children about space, excitedly pointing at graphics, gasping at facts they didn’t know and enthusiastically telling everybody in earshot – well that’s what happened when 100 Things To Know About Space arrived at the Edinburgh International Science Festival office! A book to pick up time and time again, and each time you’ll find out something new.
