Professor Astro Cat's Atomic Adventure

By Ben Newman, Dominic Walliman
Illustrated by Ben Newman

Physics is a very important part of our everyday lives! Just go for a walk through the park and you’ll see for yourself.

From the wind that rustles the trees, to the sun that keeps us warm, to the car that drives us around and the food that gives us energy to play, physics is all around us, all the time! As we journey through this book we will see how physics explains all of these amazing things, and a whole lot more. We’ll look at the basic laws of Universe, the fundamental rules that describe the nature of our world and beyond.

  • Second in the series of science books created by Walliman and Newman.
  • Professor Astro Cat’s Frontiers of Space was shortlisted for the ABCD Covered design awards 2014.
  • Digestible facts about physics to get kids excited about science.
