The Space Traveler's Guide to Exploring the Universe: Contains Real Science

Paperback
A hilarious mix of fact and fiction. Every boy in the world wants to be Doctor Who, and the Space Traveler's Manual will let him imagine he is! 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 Traveler'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 Traveler'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! Tim Collins is the author of over thirty fiction and non-fiction titles, including Wimpy Vampire, Cosmic Colin, Monstrous Maud and Dorkius Maximus. His books have been translated into over thirty languages.
