Illustrated by Ximo AbadiaWrite A Review
A visual exploration of chemistry, The Stardust That Made Us is the third stunning STEM title from Colin Stuart and Ximo Abadia, following the success of The Speed of Starlight (physics) and The Language of the Universe (mathematics). Imagine that Nature has an unseen cookbook full of different recipes for making everything you've ever encountered, from fish to fingernails and sand to Saturn. The 'ingredients' are known as chemical elements and there are 118 that we know about so far, which are organised in a grid called the periodic table. Some occur in nature, some are man-made, some are dangerous, some even glow blue! Stunning surrealist artwork by Ximo Abadia meets easy-to-read informative text by science writer Colin Stuart to create highly engaging content that will inspire future scientists.
