'SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE'
How was the solar system formed? What are black holes? Will our sun really die? Will we live on Mars? How are stars made? Are there really other universes?
These questions and more will be answered in a fascinating astronomy PowerPoint slide show called 'Secrets of the Universe'. The good part is we come to you...at your place ...so no need to get organised to go out!
especially for Australian audiences by astronomy writer and lecturer David
