Star Dad: Comedian and genuinely qualified space expert Dara Ó Briain helps us send a Tik Tok to Mars

Dec 04 2020

The host of Mock the Week, Dara Ó Briain, is one of the best-known faces in comedy, but he also has a long-standing, deep-rooted love for space. A mathematical physics graduate from University College Dublin, he fronted Stargazing Live alongside Brian Cox until 2017. Now he has written his third children’s book – and his second on the topic. Is Anybody Out There? explores how life begins in the first place, how Earth was created, whether aliens might exist elsewhere in the solar system, the search for other planets like our own, and the possibility of ever meeting aliens. The book is actually for everyone from ages 8 to 80! Kids and grown-ups will enjoy it.
