In their Guide to Space, they answer such pressing questions as Where does space begin? Why is most of the universe missing? Is there intelligent life in the universe? And the real puzzler: What came before the Big Bang? They also answer questions we wish we’d thought to ask, such as Can you surf a gravity wave? and Why is the universe’s temperature on my TV? There are answers as well to far more practical questions, like What happens when you fall into a black hole? and How will the universe end? . I'll no doubt go through it again as it is soaked with juicy info.

Quirks & Quarks, whose approach to science owes almost as much to Adams as it does to Newton or Einstein or Hawking, have flipped that notion through a gap in the space-time continuum (or something like that) and come up with answers to the 42 essential questions about space.

And so, with some irreverence and tongue slightly in cheek, Lebans lays in print details of space for the mere mortals amongst us. For those in the know, 42 is the answer that Douglas Adams provided for the ultimate question. Lebans knowingly uses this to limit his book to 42 chapters. Each chapter has a title in the form of a question such as How do you loosen the asteroid belt?.
