Secret Science

  Dara O Briain kids' book

I am thrilled to bring you another fun, silly science book for young people. After our journey to the limits of space in Beyond The Sky last year, this is a trip into those things that are very small and very invisible and very, very important to make our normal lives happen. Plus, exploding fish, farting cows and angry, angry electrons making your breakfast. It's all here. Released on October 4th or available in all good bookshops or via the links below.

So You Want To Go Into Space? Why?

  Dara O Briain kids' book

Released by Scholastic UK on 6th September, Beyond The Sky is the ultimate children's book about space, crammed with facts, figures and Dara's trademark wit.

So you want to go into space? WHY?! (No, really - it's sort of a terrible idea. We humans are perfectly designed for life on Earth. We can walk around, breathe, drink water, eat vegetables, read books, not get poisoned or crushed to death when we go outside - it's lovely right where we are.)

Not convinced? GOOD! People have been dreaming about space travel for centuries - there's something amazing about the idea of leaving our planet behind and setting out to explore the Universe - there's so much we still don't know.

UK and Ireland's best-loved comedian Dara Ó Briain takes you on a journey from the safety of your comfiest chair to the furthest reaches of space in this high-illustrated book for 8 to 80 (and beyond!).

Dara says 'I'm delighted to share my love of space and science with a whole new generation of astronomers and astronauts; and to show young people that the greatest sights in the universe can sometimes be found by simply looking up.'
