Event Details

Join authors and scientists Nicole Mortillaro and Dr. Dave Williams as they explore the mysteries of the final frontier: outer space!

Searching Beyond The Stars
Nicole Mortillaro

Are we alone in the cosmos? Could we one day live on a different planet? How is life formed? What other secrets does the universe hold? 

Through profiles of seven remarkable women scientists and their achievements in their respective fields, Searching Beyond the Stars takes us deep into space, looking at once to the distant past and the distant future to capture the awe and intrigue of some of the biggest questions we can possibly ask.

Space on Earth
Dr. Dave Williams

Who could imagine an idea born on a space station would help sustain our planet? Astronauts, living on the International Space Station, have to protect their resources because their lives depend on it. They learn to conserve water, air, food, energy, and waste.

These efforts have in turn lead to amazing and innovative ideas for air quality, food production, and water purification here on Earth.

With vivid, energetic illustrations, photographs, and Dr. Dave’s experiments on key topics, readers learn about technological innovations such as waterless toilets and the world’s tallest air purification tower.
