Science and laughs combine in this out-of-this-world adventure!
You might think that this story is going to be an intergalactic adventure filled with UFOs, black holes, killer robots and some very foul-smelling aliens.
And you'd be right.
But it's mostly about a boy called Jake, his embarrassing dad, and the mind-boggling question ... are we really alone in the universe?
