Urban Legends from Space : The Biggest Myths About Space Demystified Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Whether or not you're into sci-fi or SpaceX, you've probably called a meteor a "falling star" and think astronauts float around in space stations because there's no gravity.

Bob King, author of Wonders of the Night Sky and writer for Sky & Telescope magazine, explains the truth behind myths of navigation and landmarks, celestial bodies and government conspiracies.

Compasses don't always point north; the sun isn't yellow and Galileo didn't invent the telescope.

King explains why some people believed they found Bigfoot on Mars and many other myths - and provides us with concrete evidence to put those misconceptions to bed.

No matter what you think you know, there's something new King can teach you about our universe.
