Synopsis: Going to the Moon is SO last century, so how difficult can it be-even for a ten-year-old-to follow in the footsteps of Neil Armstrong and the Apollo astronauts? Meet Matilda, the girl who’ll give it her best shot to learn everything she needs to learn in order to get there herself. From how to pee in zero-g to why pizzas won’t take you up and up away, this is science for the curious! Told as a journey of discovery, it’s full of easy-to-understand facts about air pressure, escape velocities, coding, and falling around the Earth, in a way which will inspire the next generation of moon walkers.
