The Space Traveller's Guide to Exploring the Universe by

Need to fix your warp drive with nothing but Betelgeusian chewing gum? Stuck in a black hole? Under attack by an interstellar warlord after you mistook his grandmother for a wardrobe? These are the kind of problems faced by the modern space traveller - and routinely and heroically overcome by adventurer Gaga Rin/Buzz Dustbin, 'author' of The Space Traveller's Manual. Rin gallantly voyages across the galaxy and doesn't need his alien travel companion Galaxina to rescue him from the consequences of his own stupidity very often at all. Based on the latest real theories about scientific phenomena in space, The Space Traveller's Manual is a trip for the imagination that also has a factual core of the kind that gets boys hooked. Hop on board for a trillion-mile joyride!
