PREPARE TO LAUGH AND LEARN
 
Scientific answers to mysteries kids really want to know.

Sure a lot of kids want to grow up to be astronauts, but according to scientist Glenn Murphy, even MORE kids want to know what happens to astronaut farts. (Short answer: Not good things!)

About the Author

GLENN MURPHY gathered many of the questions he includes in this book from his years in the Explainer team at the Science Museum in London. He now lives in Raleigh, NC.
