This title introduces the planet Earth and the incredibly vast space beyond. Find out how gravity formed the Solar System, take a closer look at our neighbouring planets, follow the life of a star and discover how the Universe may have been born. This series is packed with the latest scientific information and is an ideal support for physics students at Key Stage 3 level. The series will also be of interest to older students. Fascinating feature boxes outline recent physics research and encourage the reader to look more closely at the world in which they live. Key concepts are brought to life with full colour illustrations and mini quizzes help to reinforce new ideas.
