From astrophysics to rocket science to the future of space exploration, Space Is Cool as F*ck explains everything you thought you’d never understand about the universe in plain-old filthy English. We’re talking Big Bang, aliens, black holes, time travel, degenerate astronomers, and all the fundamental things you take for granted until you stop and think (like matter—what is this sh*t, really?).
Alongside the knowledge bombs are 100 wild illustrations, photographs, and original artwork from 40 young international artists curated by Brooklyn designer Cynthia Larenas. Space Is Cool as F*ck also offers an in-depth and illuminating interview with everyone’s favorite TV scientist and head of the Planetary Society, Bill Nye the Science Guy. Space is awesome, space is absolutely bananas, and space is for everyone.
With an updated, extended interview between the author and Bill Nye.
This edition includes a bonus PDF with select artwork.

Thanks to Netgalley and Andrews McMeel audio for the ARC of this in exchange my honest review. Well this was an absolute fucking delight. A nice brief touch on some space topics, relaxed/snarky language, and an interview with Bill Nye, what more could I ask for really? I enjoyed every bit of it, but the talk about aliens was probably my favorite part.
This book is cool as f*ck. It's for a lay audience, presenting information in everyday language so anyone can understand it. While none of the information is really new, the book is a joyous celebration of our amazing universe. And the Bill Nye interview is so smart and upbeat, it's worth reading or listening to the book just for that. The audiobook contains the audio of the actual interview, which is particularly fun. Thanks, NetGalley, for the audio ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.
