'Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens' is off on another planet!
Will you be spaced-out to discover:
* which astronomers killed people?
* why space makes the guts explode?
* what the moon smells like?
If you think you can stomach the 'sick' side of Science, then read on as we blast into outer space. Zoom around the planets with 'Oddblob' the alien, find out which galaxies eat each other and see if you've got what it takes to be a staggering stargazer.
With fantastic fact files, quirky quizzes and crazy cartoons, Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens (Horrible Science)
is out of this world!'
A colourful paperback cover opens to 143 pages, written in a variety of fonts in the usual Nick Arnold entertaining style.
Black and white illustrations/cartoons throughout, as well as 'Bet you never knew' fact-boxes, e.g.:
'The Van Allen belts, named after US scientist James Van Allen, who found them in 1958, are between 1000 and 25000 km from Earth. The Sun's radiation gets trapped by the Earth's magnetic fields in the belts. But if a spacecraft broke down there, the astronauts would be revoltingly roasted by the radiation.'
