The Big Countdown: 1.5 Billion Transport Vehicles on the World's Roads Synopsis

Discover the numbers behind cars, planes, trains and rockets - from the teeny tiny to the mindbogglingly massive Do you know how fast a space rocket blasts through the sky? Or how deep under the sea submarines have ventured? How about the number of electric cars on the road? Or the top speed of NASA's crawler transporter (hint - it's not very fast!) Discover the answers to all these questions and much more in The Big Countdown: Transport. Helping readers to visualise and understand numbers, The Big Countdown series looks at popular topics and investigates the great many numbers that make them fascinating. From the mind-bogglingly large to the smallest and most precious, this series helps us understand that it's not just our days that are numbered. Ideal reading for number-crunchers aged 9 and up.

About Ben Hubbard

Ben Hubbard began his writing career at a what's-on newspaper in the 1990s, interviewing bands, actors and artists in his native Wellington, New Zealand. He later joined the fast-paced world of daily newspaper journalism before packing up shop and moving to England. Here, Ben tied a number of new strings to his bow: magazine editor, book editor, and finally, author. Today, Ben writes a mix of non-fiction for all ages - preschoolers through to adults. He has penned titles on an eclectic subject range: from space exploration, samurai warriors and medieval castles; to pop music, pets, tornadoes and rugby skills.
