Promise The Sun, Moon, and Stars… and Deliver!
Astronomy 101 on my bookshelf.
Every year, I get emails from folks asking about gift ideas for holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions. I’m a big fan of using gifts to help people learn about the stars and space exploration. It just seems like a great thing to give someone — access to the cosmos. So, in no particular order, here are some gift ideas you can use as a springboard to that really great present for someone (or even yourself).
First, as most of you know, I’m a science writer, and I have a few things out there you can read. The first is a book called Astronomy 101, which has just gone into another printing. It’s an introduction to astronomy and space exploration, aimed at people who just want to know a bit more about the universe and the things in it. I had a fun time writing it, and if you buy it, I hope you (or your designated gift target) will have fun reading it!
