Space Science is the ultimate series for the astronomers and astronauts of the future. It delves into loads of intriguing 'how', 'what', and 'why' facts about the night sky. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow and use readily available materials that won't break the bank!

About Mark Thompson

Born in Norfolk, Mark has had a fascination with all things in the sky ever since he was a small boy. At the age of 10 he got his first view through a telescope; Saturn in all its glory. It ignited a passion that has stayed with him ever since. Mark has inspired millions of viewers to get out and enjoy the night sky through his role as presenter on the RTS nominated show BBC Stargazing Live. His passion for reaching out to a new audience has found him working on The One Show, This Morning and on ITV's prime time breakfast show Good Morning. He is also a regular on BBC Breakfast, Five News and a regular voice on Radio Five Live. As an astronomy populariser, he has lectured at the Royal Institution in London and the National Astronomy Meeting and many science and literature festivals around the country. His popular family theatre show 'Spectacular Science' has toured for three years, including at the Edinburgh Fringe and has received 5 star reviews to sell-out audiences.
