Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, The Big Bang is an accessible, authoritative, and entertaining introduction to the greatest discovery in the history of science - the birth of the universe.

Written by award-winning broadcaster and cosmologist Marcus Chown, The Big Bang details how 13.82 billion years ago all matter, energy, space - and even time - erupted into being in a titanic fireball.

In this mind-bending book, you'll learn how scientists have approached the questions: What was the big bang? What drove the big bang? And what happened before the big bang?

The evidence it turns out, is all around us...

Written by the leading lights and most outstanding communicators in their fields, the Ladybird Expert books provide clear, accessible and authoritative introductions to subjects drawn from science, history and culture.For an adult readership, the Ladybird Expert series is produced in the same iconic small hardback format pioneered by the original Ladybirds. Each beautifully illustrated book features the first new illustrations produced in the original Ladybird style for nearly forty years.

How the Eagle Landed: Apollo 11, an Infographic Guide

Apollo is an extraordinary visual history of the iconic space programme, based on recently released NASA data about the various missions of that name. Using beautifully designed infographics, Apollo takes us through all the astonishing facts and figures, as well as some quirky little-known details, and gives us a detailed and elegant history of the seventeen missions which saw twelve humans step on the surface of the moon. To introduce the book, author Zack Scott  presents an exclusive preview, a sneak peak into the infographics of Apollo 11 and the incredible individuals who made that journey.

Gary Fildes' Top 10 Astronomy Targets to Spot From Your Back Garden.

As the founder and lead astronomer of Kielder Observatory in Northumberland, Gary Fildes knows first-hand just how awe inspiring our night sky can be. Nestling above the forest treeline in Europe's largest protected dark sky park, Kielder Observatory offers the UK's most superb astronomical vista and even a chance to glimpse the Northern Lights. Yet, as Gary says in his book An Astronomer's Tale, you don't need to be an expert astronomer with an array of telescopes at your fingertips to be able to look up and take in the view. Here he offers his tips for the top 10 astronomy targets you can spot from your own back garden.
