Things About Space by Aston Smith

Recommended Posts

Some of you will remember Aston Smith's first book about astronomy, The Solar System, written two years ago when he was only an eight-year-old 🙂 

His fascination with astronomy continues, so he has written another book at the grand age of ten!

Aston has ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Aston finds researching and writing books about space provides focus and a welcome calm to his otherwise chaotic frame of mind. 

This new, updated, interactive book has new thoughts, experiences, facts, and information about objects like stars, black holes, and exoplanets. He has also refreshed his drawings digitally using his iPad. 

Aston is kindly donating £2 per book, for the first 500x copies sold, to the charity UK Astronomy

Here at FLO, we will match his donations, so a total of £4 will be donated to UK Astronomy from every sale. 

UK Astronomy is a registered charity that educates, inspires and excites others by sharing knowledge and passion for space through outreach and public engagements.

Things About Space is an interactive book. Using a compatible device, readers can scan QR codes and listen to Aston narrate each page in his own voice. This is especially advantageous for young children who may struggle with some of the more complex object names and terminology.
