Shortlisted for the 2018 Blue Peter Awards - Best Book with Facts

We’re off to space with Dara! All aboard the laughter shuttle! A bonkers ride to space, launching now from your fave comfy chair. Stop looking down at your phone! Start looking up over your head! Yep: that’s space, and we’re going there right now with funnyman Dara Ó Briain. Seriously – why not? I mean, right here on Earth we can walk around, breathe, drink tea, eat chocolate and read books. It’s lovely! In space you can get poisoned or crushed to death just by going outside. But on Earth you can’t see flaming stars from (kind of) close up, or zoom through the Milky Way, or walk on the Moon. Right?

Synopsis

Beyond the Sky: You and the Universe by Dara O'Briain

So you want to go into space? WHY?! (No, really-it's sort of a TERRIBLE idea. We humans are perfectly designed for life on Earth. We can walk around, breathe, drink water, eat vegetables, read books, NOT get poisoned or crushed to death when we go outside-it's lovely right where we are.) Not convinced? GOOD! People have been dreaming about space travel for centuries-there's something amazing about the idea of leaving our planet behind and setting out to explore the UNIVERSE-there's so much we still don't know.

An incredible trip to space with comedian Dara Ó Briain

Travel to the edge of our universe in smart, funny style!

Full of laughs, incredible facts and two-colour cartoons

Dara hosts TV shows Robot Wars and Stargazing Live
