5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 22 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I used this book to teach everything that my year 6 class needed to know for the SAT's in just one 55 minute lesson. They were in stiches at the content (especially the make-believe aliens), and they can still remember even the smallest of details. Kjartan Poskitt brings the Gobsmacking Galaxy to life, and certainly made my life, and that of my pupils, a little easier. Thank you.

'First there was the Big Bang.
Then our galaxy was born.
Now we're all hurtling through space at the speed of light, along with billions and billions of other planets, stars, satellites, meteors, comets, asteroids, meteorites and goodness only know what else.
Jump up and down with excitement as you're whisked away on a grand tour of the solar system, where you'll go skiing on Mars and meet the sad creature from Pluto.
Gasp at some incredible facts about red giants, white dwarves and supernovas.
Plus....find out what happens when a bloke called Sid gets too close to a black hole.'

If you have read the 'Murderous Maths' series of books, you will be aware of the way in which Kjartan Poskitt puts knowledge across, in a humorous way.
This book is no exception.

'Warning!
Before reading this book you must prepare your brain.
Why?
Because what you are going to find out is so mind-boggling amazing that your jaw might drop off and hit the floor.

Of course, it wouldn't be so bad if this was just a made up story book, but what's really freaky is that EVEYTHING IN THIS BOOK IS TRUE!
It's completely gob-smacking.
Just to give you an idea of what your head is going to have to deal with, imagine looking up on a clear dark night.

The stars are pretty awesome on their own, but what about the black area behind them? What is it? Who put it there? How far away is it?
And the freakiest question of all......is there anything on the other side?
Even the cleverest people can only guess the answer, but this book is going to take you out there so you can decide for yourself.
Be ready to grit your teeth, though, because along the way it isn't just pretty little stars twinkling away!......

5.0 out of 5 stars Please, please buy this book 14 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Do you know anything about the galaxy, space, stars, asteroids, planets or books? No? Then buy this one. It will tell you everything you ever wanted know about the subject (well, alright, not everything, but close enough) and you will probably actually remember it - unlike reading a textbook. I bought this book about three years ago, and I really can't count how many times I've read it. Impress everyone you meet with the expert knowledge and witty humour you will (probably) accumulate during reading this.
And by the way, if the answer to the above question was "yes", then I formally challenge you to see if you knew every single thing mentioned in this book before you read it. If you've already read it, of course, that's cheating.
