About this deal

She is currently presenting the new series of The Sky At Night on BBC 4 and Mini Stargazing for CBeebies. This non-fiction text is presented as a ‘grand tour’ that children are invited to go on at the start of the book.

Along the way, kids can discover how we could live on Mars, learn about the hunt for a mysterious super-Earth, have a snowball fight on Mercury, climb the tallest mountain in the Solar System and much, much more.

This is like an enhanced glossary with information set out clearly and accessibly, including a really useful list of ‘space words’, to which I referred regularly as I read the book. Discover how we could live on Mars, learn about the hunt for a mysterious super-Earth, have a snowball fight on Mercury, climb the tallest mountain in the Solar System and much, much more.

An inspiring woman full of knowledge ready to ensure there is a new generation of astronauts, scientists and astrophysicists! This fantastic, imaginative reference book would be a wonderful resource in the classroom and treasured by any young person with an interest in space. While doing this she has toured the UK speaking to inner-city schools inspiring the next generation of physicists. This book breaks down some really complicated science into bitesize chunks that children can process and use. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.As well as fronting The Sky at Night, Maggie has appeared in numerous programmes including Stargazing Live and Doctor Who Confidential. From spotting solar flares on the Sun to exploring objects at the edge of the icy Oort Cloud, this fun, action-packed title leaves no question unanswered and no meteorite unturned. This mind-blowing book invites readers to join BBC presenter and renowned space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock (MBE) on an epic journey through the Solar System - visiting planets, moons, asteroids and satellites, and travelling to places where no human has been before.

A book that will leave its readers informed, inspired, intrigued and itching to find out as much as they can about the wonders of our Solar System and beyond. She has thought hard about ways to convey complex physics to young children in an understandable and fun way.The programme earned Maggie the Talkback Thames new talent award at the prestigious Women in Film and TV Awards in December 2011. The introduction provides an excellent overview of the Solar System as well as introducing Dr Maggie as the tour guide. Maggie is a pioneering figure in promoting science to the public and runs her own company engaging children and adults all over the world with the wonders of space science. Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock is a space scientist whose passion is presenting science to a general audience and demonstrating that you ‘don’t need a brain the size of a small planet’ to understand, participate in and enjoy science. This marvellous exploration of the history, design, engineering, technology and innovation of car-making is essential reading for any child with an interest in cars.

Overcoming Dyslexia to study at Imperial College, she obtained her degree in Physics and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering.
