Publisher: Usborne

Did you know that the Earth's core is actually hotter than the sun? That if dinosaurs had had telescopes they might have seen volcanoes erupting on the moon? Or that astronomers are using maths to search for alien life?

This highly illustrated, infographic-style book presents 100 space-related facts and ideas, from more regular topics such as the dimensions of the solar system, to the quirky and unusual. It's an eclectic and fascinating collection, effectively combining science with history and logic, and stories of real people and events. Presented in an entertaining and accessible way, it'll engage anyone from 8 to 80.

Read it from start to finish, or dip in and out to discover what 'spaghettification' is, how much a space toilet costs, and what holds the universe together...
