Have you ever gazed at the night sky and wondered what secrets lay hidden among our many neighbouring planets and galaxies? Was there a time when you once wished upon a shooting star or simply pointed your finger outside of the window and shouted “LOOK AT ALL OF THE GLITTERING, SPARKLING, BEAUTIFUL DIAMONDS SHIMMERING IN THE BIG UNIVERSE!” (Or words to that effect…obviously…) Well, with the help of Mark Thompson’s truly wonderful book, A Down To Earth Guide To The Cosmos, you’ll be privy to a rather special journey through space. Not only will you tackle some of the key concepts of astronomy but you’ll browse through a collection of spectacular photographs as you make a galactic discovery of your very own.

Mark Thompson is one of the presenters on the BBC One award nominated show Stargazing Live and the resident astronomer on ITV’s The Alan Titchmarsh Show. When not gracing our television screens he is most likely writing about the sky, looking at it or flying through it (as a qualified pilot, not a human cannonball). He writes for a number of websites including Discovery News’ Space pages and the Space Exploration Network along with a variety of other publications, he is also a regular on Radio Five Live.
Born in Norfolk, Mark has had a fascination with all things in the sky ever since he was a small boy and is proud to be a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society.
