Douglas Adams


Life, the Universe and Everything
Year 1982
Publisher Pan Books
ISBN 0330267388



'One of the strangest events in the history of life, the universe and everything occurred here on Earth shortly before it got demolished . . . '

For two books, humankind has been unaware of a not inconsequential snippet of information.
The most careful consultation of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and The Restaurant at the end of the Universe have left millions unaware of why Earth has always been shunned by the rest of the Galaxy.
Now all - and more - can be revealed . . .

'The history of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one of idealism, despair, struggle, passion, success, failure and enormously long lunch-breaks'
Quoted from an interview with Hurling Frootmig, 17th acting editor of the Guide

'Why stop now, just when I'm hating it'

Aura, NASA's latest Earth-observing satellite, will help us understand and protect the air we breathe. Aura will help answer three key scientific questions: Is the Earth's protective ozone layer recovering? What are the processes controlling air quality? How is the Earth's climate changing?
