With the help of bestselling children’s author Steve Cole, these books are Peake’s first forays into fiction. Aimed at ages 8–11, they are written from the point of view of 14-year-old Danny Munday as he and his best friend, Jamila al-Sufi, try to save the world from aliens intent on conquering the human race. While this is a common sci-fi trope, the books are replete with science facts and sincere moral messaging – albeit with both often featured in quite a heavy-handed way. As Adi gets to know Danny, and learns to appreciate simple pleasures in life, the dataswarm decides that the best way to save this ravaged earth, is to “advance” all seven billion of the humans into a deep, dark, seething mass of data. A ground-breaking human history of space by beloved British astronaut and bestselling author Tim Peake.Thankfully, the supernatural elements of the books blend neatly with the science. Take Adi’s powers, which allow her to do things like drive a car on water, bend buildings and walk through walls. She compares it to rolling a dice with an infinite number of sides, explaining how she simply rolls it enough times to get the outcome she desires, no matter how improbable it is. “At the quantum level, Danny, everything comes down to chance and probability.” These great intergalactic adventures for all ages will take you on exciting interstellar journeys through the cosmos... Revolutions in computing Find out how scientists are exploiting digital technologies to understand online behaviour and drive research progress
