About this title

Synopsis:

Albert Einstein said his first ideas about relativity came from looking in the mirror as a teenager and wondering what it would be like to travel on a beam of light. This is the story of that journey... Journey by Starlight follows an imaginary recreation of Albert Einstein, and his traveling companion through space and time as they travel on a beam of light from a star over 3,000 light years away to Earth. Along the way, Einstein explains the science behind everything from the origins of the universe to the meaning of life, relativity, black holes, quantum mechanics (for beginners), climate change, evolution vs. intelligent design, and how the brain works, all delivered in fun, easy-to-understand, bite-sized chunks. Based on the popular blog of the same name, Journey By Starlight has been given the graphic novel treatment, pairing the narrative with fantastic, whimsical artwork to assist in simplifying what can be difficult-to-understand ideas.

From the Author:

Every kid starts out loving space, dinosaurs and all the rest of the treasures in the scientific universe. Somewhere along the way, usually during high school, that enthusiasm can fade away. I wrote this book to re-ignite the innate fascination I believe we all have in the world around us. In particular I was looking to engage teenagers (both teenage ones and grown up ones) in science and reignite their enthusiasm for this subject through the sort of stuff they love to read for fun - comics!
