Having survived some of the scariest destinations on Earth in The Daredevil’s Guide to Dangerous Places, Eddie and Junko are off on another epic adventure—this time to outer space.
Join our intergalactic explorers as they travel across our Solar System and beyond. Find out what it’s like to live on the Moon, visit the International Space Station and fly through Saturn's rings, before you head deeper into space to escape black holes and watch stars explode.
You’ll encounter many dangers on your journey, but your custom high-tech suit and gadget-packed spaceship will protect you—even against extreme temperatures and asteroids!
With real-life photos, out-there illustrations, incredible facts and mind-blowing space stats, The Daredevil’s Guide to Outer Space is an awe-inspiring introduction to the Universe.
