This book has completely blown my mind! I couldn't put it down and have read the whole book in a day!
This book contains so many interesting and fascinating facts about space that I never knew and have never come across before!
The photography that coincides with it is fantastic too!
I found this book easy to understand and so I absorbed the information alot better than some books with information.
I will be getting this in hardback when it is released for my daughter and my class at school as they will all love it!

I loved this book! The facts are so interesting and well explained so almost everyone ( I say this depending on the age of the reader) can understand even the most complex theories. The pictures are stunning and help visualize concepts. I will probably be purchasing this book for my classroom.

I like to read about physics and astronomy.
Ant whenever any news related to Nasa or Spacex comes in news media, I wonder how fast we are gaining new insights into deep corners of universe.
This book is everything a science fan desires to hold in his hand.
It tells 101 interesting, solid, captivating facts about space with a enjoyable story linked to its discovery.
Their are lots of new things to know like lakes of Europa, shrinking venus, color of sun and many such amazing facts.
Few things are well known to general public like cosmic radiation, black holes, dark side of the moon but their are many new things worth pondering upon.
Best thing are amazing pictures with each fact.
A wonderful experience while reading non complicated astronomy book.
