Spacewarp: Colliding Comets and Other Cosmic Catastrophes

Fred Watson

Why do stars twinkle? How’s the best way to start spotting constellations and comets? Is there life beyond Earth? What’s the chance of a catastrophic collision with a killer asteroid?

He’s covered the big space questions for adults, now Australia’s very own Astronomer-at-Large Fred Watson embarks on a grand tour of the Universe especially for children. From stargazing to telescopes, space travel to black holes, killer asteroids to aliens, Fred covers every question kids might ask about space – and then some!

With incredible illustrations by Fred himself, and a quirky mix of mind-boggling facts, Spacewarp is a fascinating book that kids will love – and parents and friends will undoubtedly learn a thing or two as well!

Astronomy was the first science, so why not start here?'

- – Dr. Karl, award-winning author and science communicator
