De Komische Komedie | The Summer Sessions


Contagious story about our longing for a better world

Whether with a telescope or a rocket, humanity continues to direct its desire toward the cosmos. In his latest book De Kosmische Komedie , Frank Westerman takes his reader on a science-non-fiction space journey. Westerman is a master at creating creative, unexpected connections, as a journalist, essayist and writer. On Explore the North, he tells you more with his signature boyish curiosity. Expect an exciting quest, navigating between astronomy and space travel, earth and universe. From Eise Eisinga and Yuri Gagarin to the first "female" robotic human in space, The Cosmic Comedy is science non-fiction at its most infectious.
