Eating the Sun: Small Musings on a Vast Universe, by Ella Frances Sanders
A beautifully illustrated exploration of the principles, laws, and wonders that rule our universe, our world, and our daily lives, from the New York Times bestselling creator of Lost in Translation
Have you ever found yourself wondering what we might have in common with stars, or why the Moon never leaves us? Thinking about the precise dancing of planets, the passing of time, or the nature of natural things?
Our world is full of unshakable mystery, and although we live in a civilization more complicated than ever, there is simplicity and reassurance to be found in knowing how and why.
Eating the Sun is a delicately existential, beautifully illustrated, and welcoming exploration of the universe - one that examines and marvels at the astonishing principles, laws, and phenomena that we exist alongside, that we sit within.
“Unique and delightful . . . Sanders’s marveling is inspiring and sure to be contagious, even for the least scientifically minded of readers.” - Booklist
“If you’re looking for a book to ignite passion in science, and a reminder that despite the misery shown daily in the news the universe is in actual fact quite beautiful, then you should read this book.” - Chemistry World
