Way out in space, maths plays a COSMIC role. It’s a world of spheres and symmetry, and the way the Moon looks from Earth is all down to angles. A total solar eclipse is due to an extraordinary numerical coincidence: the Sun is about 400 times larger than the Moon, but 400 times farther away... Find out why comets shrink, galaxies form spirals, and if there’s a mathematical answer to alien life out there...

•Maths brought to life through everyday examples, stunning scientific discoveries, and art and sporting activities.
•Superb photographs show exactly the points being explained.
•Clear text presented in neat nuggets with fascinating details.
•Source books to tie in with schoolwork.
•Designed to engage the most reluctant reader.
