UK Astronomy is a registered charity whose ethos is to educate, inspire and excite others by sharing our knowledge and passion for space. We do this by offering astronomy outreach and public engagement for anyone who thinks space is awesome and wants to find out how vast and magnificent it all is.
Aston Smith, our Junior UK Astronomer team member, also known as "Cosmic Kid", has published his second book titled Things About Space. Now at 10 years old, Aston
wanted to expand on his first book by creating an updated interactive version packed full of new thoughts, experiences, and facts and information about
other objects like stars, black holes and exoplanets. His fascination with space and the expanding universe captures his interest and he loves to
share his knowledge with others.
Things About Space is an interactive book. Using a compatible device, readers are able to scan QR codes and listen to Aston narrate each page in his own voice. This is especially advantageous for young children who may struggle with some of the more complex object names and terminology. Click or scan the QR code to listen to a sample of Aston narrating a paragraph of the book.
In support of our wonderful charity, Aston will donate £2 from the sale of the first 500 copies to UK Astronomy. If you would like to support both Aston and UK Astronomy, you can order your copy by visiting his website.
