Spacewarp: Colliding Comets and Other Cosmic Catastrophes
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?'
