|Starlight is a free space and astronomy newsletter for young adults.
The first issue was published with a grant from the Royal Astronomical
Society and financial backing from the Faulkes Telescope Project, as
well as editorial support from the Society for Popular Astronomy. The
intention of ‘Starlight’ is to bring the sense of wonder, excitement
and fun that we feel about space and astronomy to today’s
schoolchildren, encouraging them to have a greater appreciation for the
Universe around us and the Earth’s place within it, and encourage young
people to take up more of an interest and study science. With the
International Year of Astronomy in 2009 this is the ideal time to take
up an interest in all things going on out there in space. Our motto is
‘educating whilst entertaining’ and we hope that ‘Starlight’ will play
its part in creating the scientists of tomorrow. You can download a copy of starlight here.
