Living busily on Planet Earth, we rarely remember that we actually inhabit only a miniscule part of the universe. In this book the author paints the wider picture, and takes us on a journey across billions of kilometers in our galaxy, from our Sun to near and distant planets. For 2,500 years, mathematicians and scientists have investigated our universe and found that the dimensions, the temperatures and the speeds (light years!) are unbelievably extreme. A fascinating introduction for younger listeners.
