The questions in this book were curated by the staff at Londons Royal Observatory to address all the most common - and a few uncommon - things that children want to know about the universe and about outer space. It covers a mixture of basic questions about planets moons human exploration and the origins of the universe as well as tackling really BIG questions such as How do Black Holes work Is it worth going to space? and Whats going to happen at the end of time? Join two curious children and a robot programmed with all the answers as they guide readers through some of the most mind-boggling facts and a refreshingly honest take on what things we simply dont know and how to approach questions that dont have simple straight answers.
