Come explore and learn all about space and our universe through a comic book. This cartoon guide will show you all the amazing wonders of the universe.

Great for ages 9 and up!

Join Kanna, Kanta, Yamane, and Gloria in The Manga Guide to the Universe as they explore our solar system, the Milky Way, and faraway galaxies in search of the universe's greatest mysteries: dark matter, cosmic expansion, and the Big Bang itself.

As you rocket across the night sky, you'll become acquainted with modern astronomy and astrophysics, as well as the classical discoveries and theories on which they're built. You'll even learn why some scientists believe finding extraterrestrial life is inevitable!


You'll also learn about:

  • Discoveries made by Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Hubble, and other seminal astronomers
  • Theories of the universe's origins, evolution, and geometry
  • The ways you can measure and observe heavenly bodies with different telescopes, and how astronomers calculate distances in space
  • Stellar classifications and how the temperature, size, and magnitude of a star are related
  • Cosmic background radiation, what the WMAP satellite discovered, and scientists' predictions for the future of the universe

So dust off your flight suit and take a fantastic voyage through the cosmos in The Manga Guide to the Universe.

    Keeps kids interested!

    My 7 year old son loved the "Survive!" comic book series about the human body, so I began looking for other books similar to that. We found "The Manga Guide To.." books and these are perfect! They are fun, interesting, and educational. My son goes through them over and over again and shares interesting facts that he finds out with me and his dad! Definitely recommend. :)
