The Klutz Guide to the Galaxy

When the scientists at Klutz Labs tackle outer space, questions like "where's the Big Dipper?" are just the beginning. We also ponder important stuff like "How likely is it that a meteor will fall from the sky and squash me flat?" and "If I lived on Mercury, am I already old enough to drive?" and "Why do they call them MoonPies?"

With The Klutz Guide to the Galaxy, you can explore the universe without leaving the comfort of your backyard. Assemble the included telescope to see the Moon's top attractions. Flick on the red-lense flashlight — specially designed to keep your night vision intact — to consult the Tourist Map of the Moon and super-simple star charts. Tell time with a star, using the book's built-in sundial. Or use the astrolab to figure out your latitude anywhere on Earth.

And when someone asks what you did on your vacation, you can say, "Oh, I explored the edge of the Orion Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy." (In other words, our solar system.) You sound outrageously intergalactic yet still totally truthful. Isn't science great?Click here for more
