about this item
Since ancient times, humans have been puzzled and awed by the strange stars, peculiar planets, and out of this world objects that appear in our sky. Advancements in technology are now giving scientists closer looks and first peeks at the weird and wonderful things that make up our solar system and beyond. From Earth-like moons to strange signals from distant galaxies, Bizarre Space: A Kid's Guide to Our Strange, Unusual Universe showcases the most shocking space discoveries, proving that what lies beyond our little blue and green planet is fascinatingly and often frighteningly bizarre. For example, you might know that Pluto's no longer a planet, but why did it get demoted to float among the other "oddities" of space? What happens to stars when they die? What disaster is just waiting to happen to Mars? And why, exactly, can't Uranus seem to roll straight? "Bizarre Space: A Kid's Guide to Our Strange, Unusual Universe" takes you deep into our unusual universe to discover the mysteries that lie beyond our home planet.
