It's a BIG universe out there, and there's loads of stuff we don't know about it yet. But what we do know is pretty cool! This book has loads of information on all sorts of brilliant things like black holes, planets, solar flares and red dwarfs, with no boring bits!
Glenn Murphy wrote his first book, Why is Snot Green? while managing the Explainer team at the Science Museum in London.
Favourite science fact: the eye of a colossal squid measure 27cm (almost a foot) across. It has the largest eyes of any animal in the world.
