From things that fall from the sky (great green globs!) to the birth of the moon, exploding stars, wooden spaceships, life in deep space, this bird's eye view of the universe takes us all the way to the end of the solar system and back again.

Dr Karl is one of the most dynamic and enthusiastic popular scientists in Australia.

His adult titles are anecdotal, fascinating and informative.

His quirky and contagiously accessible take on science and the amazing world around us is now available for children aged 8 years and over.

The first title, Dinosaurs Aren't Dead, exposes an amazing truth:while practically all of the many species of dinosaurs died out spectacularly 65 million years ago – one species did survive, and still lives today – the birds.

The book will be highly illustrated with lots of black and white cartoons to explain the Big Bang theory, shifting Tectonic plates and dinosaur evolution.


Dr Karl at his best - again!


Great as a gift for young and old alike.

Dr Karl Kruszelnicki

About the Author

Karl’s media career began in 1981, when he started presenting ‘Great Moments In Science ‘ on Double J to pay his way through medical school. Since then, his media career has exploded from radio to include TV, books, newspapers, magazines, scripting, professional speaking, and of course, the Net. Karl made his TV debut in 1985 as the presenter of the first series of Quantum. Since 1986 he has reported science on the Midday Show, Good Morning Australia (including a full-time stint in 1991-2 as the TV Weatherman and science reporter), the Today Show and Channel 7?s breakfast program Sunrise. Along side his fellow geek Adam Spencer, he has written and co-produced two series of Sleek Geeks for ABC TV. Karl also popularises science on ABC radio stations across Australia and, on the BBC, for several hours each week.

In 2012, Asteroid 18412 was named in honour of Dr Karl Kruszelnicki – it was discovered by Robert H. McNaught at the Siding Spring Observatory in Coonabarabran, New South Wales, Australia, on June 13, 1993.

Karl has degrees in Physics and Maths, Biomedical Engineering, Medicine and Surgery and has worked as a physicist, tutor, film-maker, car mechanic, labourer, and as a medical doctor.

He is the author of 34 popular science books, with No. 35 & 36 on the way. Dr Karl is currently the Julius Sumner Miller Fellow at the University of Sydney.
