Stephen Hawking was arguably the world’s most respected scientist and certainly one of the iconic figures of our lifetime.  What a loss to us his brilliant mind was – and further, what an absolute inspiration to any who followed his career.

Curated by his equally brilliant daughter Lucy this is a collection of essays which will take readers on an exploration of the universe from its beginning through the marvellous advances made in space exploration and travel and more. Readers of a scientific bent will thoroughly enjoy this especially as it combines both amazing facts and stunning colour photographs.

Particularly if, like us, you have a Science component to your ‘at home’ learning you will find this a wonderful addition for readers from middle primary to middle secondary who are investigating space. It certainly is on our agenda and this one will stay at home a while to cater for this.

Despite it’s scientific content the essays are written in a very accessible style and the many topics investigated which range from the physical explanations of the universe to earth science to robotics and future predictions.

Highly recommended for curious minds from around 10 years upwards.
