How many rivets and bolts hold the wings of a Boeing 777 plane together? Why does an astronaut's spacesuit have a layer of liquid-cooled underwear? Who puts the jam in doughnuts?

His intricate artwork will have children and adults alike poring over every detail, whether it's following the production line of a factory making newspapers or exploring the insides of the Saturn V rocket.
