Neil deGrasse Tyson Writing Astrophysics Book for the Youth

Young, aspiring astrophysicists are in a hurry, too, and Neil deGrasse Tyson has a book for them!

Neil deGrasse Tyson is all about sharing his knowledge and passion for the universe and the laws of its construction with others. Now, he’s looking to translate this passion to a young audience…

According to EW, deGrasse Tyson is adapting his best-selling book Astrophysics for People in a Hurry into a book for young readers. It will be called Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurry, and will be co-written with Gregory Mone (The Boys in the Boat). Keep an eye out for Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurry in February 2019. 

Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurrywill ask and answer many of the same questions posed and explained in Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, such as “What is the nature of space and time?,” “How do we fit within the universe?,” and “How does the universe fit within us?” You know… simple stuff. Except, in this youth-oriented edition, the answers to such questions will include color photos and infographics. (I’m not gonna lie… I still appreciate these elements as an adult reader.)
