Gaze at gorgeous galaxies and marvel at the Milky Way. Get answers to questions such as: * What's inside the Sun? * Where are the Pillars of Creation? * Why do stars twinkle? * How fast does a pulsar spin? * Which galaxy is a cannibal? * How long would it take to travel across the Milky Way? Perfect for the new curriculum, this fascinating title is packed full of astounding information and number-based jaw-dropping facts and figures to inspire future astronauts and space scientists.
