This edition of the Big Book of Science consists only of a single (albeit thick) book. There are at least 997 pages in this edition, as in Vault 101 when taking the G.O.A.T., on the blackboard, one can see "turn to page 976 in Big Book of Science." Students also "need to study page 997" according to the same blackboard.

Behind the scenes
