Looking Up: An Illustrated Guide to Telescopes

Regular price £14.99 Sale

Looking Up is a celebration of telescopes around the world and speeding through space. These incredible structures gaze out into the solar system and beyond, helping us learn about distant stars and planets.

Discover these amazing feats of engineering with cutaway illustrations, alongside detailed explanations of the science of light. All over the world, people have built fantastic instruments for looking up into the sky. These telescopes are not just engineering marvels - they are monuments to curiosity and wonder.

Discover the physics behind astronomy and stargazing, from the reason that telescopes are often built in deserts to how scientists can tell what planets are made of, even from million of light years away.
