Journey to the Stars by Stuart Clark
"Journey to the Stars" takes us on an amazing tour past the planets in our own solar system to neighbouring galaxies, by way of newborn stars, exploding stars, and a black hole. Beautiful artwork and revolutionary images from the Hubble Space Telescope will allow children to see the surface of stars and planets in amazing detail. Expert explanation tells children what they are looking at, and why stars and planets have formed in this way. Stuart Clark has a first class degree in astronomy and combines writing books and articles on space with teaching at the University of Hertfordshire. He also tours schools giving talks on popular topics such as the Apollo moon landings, big bang and the Hubble Space Telescope. He has made guest appearances on children's television and takes school parties round the observatory at the University of Hertfordshire.
