Look up at the night sky, away from city lights, and watch as the stars appear. These pinpricks of light are giant balls of burning gas, millions and millions and millions of kilometres away. So far away that it takes the light thousands of years to reach us.This book, published in collaboration with the Natural History Museum, looks at stardust in space - the substance that made the planets, that built the Moon, the stars, the comets, the meteorites and the asteroids - and asks what this dust is and where its journey started.

Look up at the night sky, away from city lights, and watch as the stars appear. These pinpricks of light are giant balls of burning gas, millions and millions and millions of kilometres away. So far away that it takes the light thousands of years to reach us. This book, published in collaboration with the Natural History Museum, looks at stardust in space - the substance that made the planets, that built the Moon, the stars, the comets, the meteorites and the asteroids - and asks what this dust is and where its journey started.


Far from the city, millions of starts are visible in the night sky. But these beautiful, twinkling lights are really giant balls of fusing gas that lie millions and millions of miles away and formed from a substance known as stardust. Stardust made the planets, too, and the Moon, comets, meteorites, and asteroids. In this absorbing book, based on the latest scientific information, young readers learn what this fundamental dust is and where its journey started. The wonders of the cosmos are beautifully depicted in Lucia de Leiris’s luminous illustrations.
