Description

Perfect for inquisitive cosmic kids aged 8-12, this succinct, entertaining look at what really happens in space takes a rapid-fire approach, offering 30 key topics, each one explained in neat 30-second soundbites and supported by 3-second flash summaries and cool, cartoon-style artwork. 3-minute active missions throughout will challenge lively young minds to test facts or go further and find out more. The attention-grabbing format is perfect for space. Topics range from the Big Bang theory and ways in which scientists think the universe might end, to what we know about distant planets and galaxies. Mind-boggling ideas about worm holes, dark matter and aliens will test the limits of even the most creative imagination.
