Description

America's most celebrated astrophysicist invites young readers to explore the mysteries of the universe.

Neil deGrasse Tyson has become one of the most recognizable and respected figures in science, beloved to curious kids. In this adaptation of his #1 New York Times bestseller Astrophysics for People in a Hurry , Tyson has--for the first time--served up the universe in a handy, portable package designed specifically for young readers.

From the difference between a star and a supernova to what matter and dark matter really are, Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurry will turn busy kids into budding experts on the fundamental rules and unknowns of our universe. Dozens of color photos, infographics, and extra explanations make accessible even the trickiest concepts, including questions around the nature of space and time. Along the way, Tyson's characteristic wit ensures a journey packed with fun.

Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurry introduces young readers to an exciting field and the principles of scientific inquiry, fostering the "cosmic perspective" that outer space inspires in all of us.
