Children’s Book Published by Armando Azua-Bustos

Are we alone among aaaaall these stars? While astrobiologists continue to ponder this question, BMSIS research scientist Armando Azua-Bustos published a children’s book to help explain the ideas and wonder of the search for life to young people (and their parents).

The book is written for children in order to introduce them, in very simple terms, to astrobiology, the understanding of the origin of life on Earth and the possibility of its existence elsewhere in the Universe from the scientific point of view. Printed in full color with vivid illustrations, Are we alone among aaaaall these stars? leads the reader through some of the most profound questions that have shaped science in general and astrobiology in particular. Perfect for a wide range of ages, and excellent as bedtime reading, Azua-Bustos’ book helps to promote astrobiology education–and perhaps inspire a few young folks to seek a scientific career one day.
