What's it about?

While the vastness of our universe might not be something our mere human brains will ever truly comprehend, learning about the parts we do know is a great first step! Beginning with the origin story of the universe, this collection will take you to the moon, the sun, and further into the wonders of the cosmos. Learn how the recent discoveries on Venus and Mars may bring us closer to discovering alien life, dive into the complex science behind black holes, and why our human quest for the meaning of life launches us into the universe time and again.
