YA-- How astronauts navigate in space, how the Great Pyramids were built, and how the soft centers are put in pieces of chocolate are among the many questions answered in this fascinating book. Amply illustrated with full-color drawings, it is arranged into 12 categories that range from exploration of the universe to marvels of science to curiosities of food and drink. An eclectic mixture of information that can be read for pleasure or as a starting point for research papers or projects.
