About this book

From planet Earth to the furthest reaches of the known universe, Everything You Need to Know About The Universe lives up to its promise. In these pages you'll find everything you need to know (and more) about this fascinating subject. Starting with the planets and stars visible to the naked eye, this trail-blazing book takes the reader on an unforgettable journey into outer space. Along the way you'll encounter the wonders of our solar system, key astronomical breakthroughs, the first manned space flights, the Apollo landings, the major constellations, local and deep space galaxies, black holes, dark matter, red dwarfs and quasars. You'll also learn about the Big Bang Theory and discover just how close we've come to answering the eternal question – are we alone?

Besides covering everything you need to know, this book is packed with visually stimulating and easy-to-remember illustrations, bar graphs, pie charts, timelines and diagrams. Everything You Need to Know About The Universe is also perfect for kids – including those of the adult variety – who are keen to learn all the important stuff they'll need to know in a way that they'll never forget.
