So You Want To Learn About… SPACE

I often find myself wishing that I knew so much more about so many different things. Science, languages, different areas of history… there’s so much that I’m missing out on! Over the past few years I’ve been reading more and more non-fiction to try and fill these gaps, so I thought it would be fun to turn this into a blog feature where I recommend non-fiction books based on a certain theme. These will either be ones I’ve chosen myself because I want to read more about them, or ones suggested in the comments – so if there’s anything you want to learn more about, let me know!

Today’s theme is space. As most of you already know, I absolutely LOVE science fiction – whether I’m reading, watching a film or playing video games, I LOVE SPACE!

BUT – I don’t really know much about it. At least, the real factual stuff. This is something I’ve been wanting to educate myself on for a while (BECAUSE SPACE IS COOL), it is just a matter of finding accessible books because I was never the best at science in school…

So which non-fiction books out there look really good?

A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking, Cosmos by Carl Sagan, The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos by Brian Greene

  1. Can’t believe you didn’t put “Why does E=mc2!!! ” That was a good book! Actually anything by Professor Cox is good, he tries to make it simple for his audience so it’s more accessible.

    • It didn’t appear in my search! Probably because I was searching specifically for space stuff rather than physics/mathematics. Do you have that one?
