This year YouTube star Charlie McDonnell released his book Fun Science. In the book Charlie takes us on an awesome journey through the cosmos - beginning with the Big Bang through to the Solar System and the origins of life on Earth, all the way down to the particles that make up everything around us. Basically it's a guide to why the universe is just so cool!

He also has an awesome You Tube series based on the book and we have put together some of our favourite videos for you so you can get on the science is fun bandwagon too.
