Description

Taking all the best bits of science and fusing it all together, Space Is Cool as Fuck will be finding a permanent home on living room tables around the world. Everything you thought you could never understand about the universe is explained in plain-old filthy English, giving you a little taste of the glorious reality you inhabit. Over 50 chapters address subjects including the Big Bang, aliens, black holes, time travel, the degenerate astronomer who drank all night and died from holding his bladder . . . and also lost his nose in a duel, and the things you take for granted until you really think about them; like matter—what the fuck is all this shit that we are? This book features more than 100 wild artworks, photographs and illustrations from 40 international young artists curated by Brooklyn designer Cynthia Larenas. Space is Cool as Fuck also features an in-depth and illuminating interview with everyone’s favorite TV scientist Bill Nye the Science Guy, Head of the Planetary Society, who believes that, no, we are not fucked and this planet and our people have a future.
