SPACE: 10 Things You Should Know

DR BECKY SMETHURST    Book Number: 89023    Product format: Hardback

Bite-sized cutting edge science delivered with great enthusiasm, a lot of astrophysics is packed into this neat little book for anyone wanting to understand the mind-blowing fundamentals of our extraordinary, expanding universe. Written by Oxford astrophysicist Dr Becky Smethurst and composed of ten captivating, simple essays, the book guides you swiftly through the galaxies explaining the mysteries of black holes, dark matter, and what existed before the Big Bang, presenting the evidence as to whether we are really alone and illuminating what we still don't know and much more besides. Covers why gravity matters, why the planets closer to the Sun orbit much faster than those further away, planet-wide dust storms expected every three years (not something you can ignore when planning for a base on Mars), why the night sky is dark and why aliens probably exist. 120pp.
