Welcome, fellow humans (and others), to the the world of FUN SCIENCE! I'm Charlie, also known across the internet as charlieissocoollike.
In my book, I take you on an awesome journey through the cosmos, beginning with the Big Bang through to the Solar System and the origins
of life on Earth, all the way down to the particles that make up everything around us (including you and me!).
Expect frequent digressions, tons of illustrations of not-so-sciencey things (NB a microwave flying through space), and pages packed with my all time favourite mind-bending science facts.
So, get ready for a faster-than-the-speed of-light (OK, not quite) tour of all of the best and most interesting things that science has to offer us... and most importantly: WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSE!
(Written by a science fan NOT a scientist!)
