Strap in for a rip-roaring ride through the history of the universe, starting with the Big Bang, and bringing us right up to present day. What was the universe like when it was a few seconds old? How had it changed by its millionth birthday? And when did time even start, for that matter?! The story of the last 13.8 billion years in one handy volume, you can read about the start of stars, the growth of galaxies and the production of planets. Plus, there are some great dad jokes. Hold on tight...

  • Some suns have just got that star quality... but which stars are really hot stuff?
  • Who’s who in the galactic zoo? There are several different types of galaxy in the universe. How do they form?
  • The tragic death of the star – how do stars die, and why?
  • What’s blacker than black… a black hole!
  • Peek into the future – what will the universe be like in the next few billion years?
  • How do we even know this stuff? Read about the scientists who are figuring it all out.
