From the Master Geek and National Living Treasure"Dr Karl is Australia's incumbent President of Science" The Age"There's no topic on which Dr Karl does not have an interestingly expressed opinion" The Weekly ReviewFrom things that fall from the sky (great green globs!) to the birth of the moon, exploding stars, wooden spaceships, life in deep space, this bird's eye view of the universe takes us all the way to the end of the solar system and back again.Dr Karl is one of the most dynamic and enthusiastic popular scientists in Australia. His adult titles are anecdotal, fascinating and informative. His quirky and contagiously accessible take on science and the amazing world around us is now available for children aged 8 years and over. The first title, Dinosaurs Aren't Dead, exposes an amazing truth: while practically all of the many species of dinosaurs died out spectacularly 65 million years ago - one species did survive, and still lives today - the birds.
