Stevie and Tessa learn all about stars and how to stargaze with Abigail Beall author of The Art of Urban Astronomy - featuring some excellent questions such as “What is the Milky Way?” and “How do people see stars from the Earth when they are such a long way away?” and “If aliens are really far away looking at us, won’t they be seeing into the past? So is the Earth covered in dinosaurs to them?”. Mind-blowing business.
