Cosmology is the study of the origin and evolution of the universe.

Take a trip through the life of the cosmos and unravel some of its mysteries with this ambitious non-fiction title, which begins with the head-spinning question, “Why does the universe bother to exist?”.

Children will explore Newtonian and Eisteinian gravitational models, learn how a star is born, investigate black holes and the mystery of dark matter and dive into the relatively new fields of exoplanets and gravitational waves.

Making an incredibly complex subject fun and entertaining is an art, and the author’s teaching experience shines through in his simple, lively explanations.

Pupils with a passion for science – and those that love to ask “Why?” – will lap this up, and can then go back to the first book in the series, My First Book of Quantum Physics.
