Summary

Have you ever tried to guess how many stars exist in our night sky, or maybe even in our entire galaxy? Or do you ever find yourself thinking about whether or not we’re alone in this universe? Then keep on reading!

Our solar system, the Milky Way, and the whole universe, are such vast and expansive spaces (excuse the pun) and we are constantly learning new things about them. Because of how large the universe is, and the fact that it’s constantly broadening, it seems as though it’s almost impossible to truly know all there is to know about it. Although this might be the case, I’ve decided to compile my favorite facts about space for you to listen to in order to get an idea of all that we do know about our incredible universe currently.

In this book, you’ll discover:

How the Milky way got its name, how the moon was created, and the type of star which astronomers believe hosts alien Earth-like planets. Heaps of other facts about all things space, from our own solar system, to the sun, the stars, galaxies, the Milky Way, and more. A bonus chapter with 30 trivia questions to test your space knowledge!

So if you want to sharpen up on your space familiarity, and impress everyone with your astronomical-expertise, then this audiobook is for you!

Informative!

The book gives insight into facts that it is worth knowing about space to educate and inform listeners. It is interesting to know how the moon was created and other facts about space. The book also has a couple of questions to test young ones and engage the brain
It is worth listening to get more facts about spaces.

Unleash your inner nerd!

This was a fun listen. If you are interested in outer space, this has many fun factoids you'll probably never need to know, but hey, maybe you could use the trivia at the end to win some money at the bar or something, lol. This audiobook is pure enjoyment. Let go and geek out into outer space.

Informative!

I was elated listening to this audiobook. The reason is that the audiobook gave me detailed information about what I heard before about the space but did not know much about. If you want to have detailed information about the space this is the right book for you. One other thing that I found outstanding about this book is that it has questions that test your knowledge of the information you got from the book. I will recommend this audiobook to curious minds who want to know more about our universe.

Space, the final frontier...

If you're a space nut like me or if your kids are - this is a FANTASTIC audiobook presentation! Great fun and amazing facts (some I didn't even know) Will keep you busy for just the right amount of time! (Kids tend to bore/tire easily) But I found this was just perfect. Facts you should Know: Space Facts is a wonderful audio presentation. I highly recommend it and am happy I found it. Bonus note - the narrator's voice is very relaxing and almost "hypnotic". Great stuff.

Great little book of facts! Sat down with my 6 year old for this one and he (an I) thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of facts that I had never heard before, and there is a trivia quiz at the end as well which was fun!

Full of fun facts, and a really enjoyable listen

The topic is space can be a little dry and academic, but not in this audiobook. Great narrator, easy to follow and filled with really cool little gems. I also really enjoyed the quiz. Would recommend!
