An inspired biographical picture book about a female astronomer who
makes huge discoveries about the mysteries of the night sky and changed
the way we look at the universe

Vera Rubin was one of the
astronomers who discovered and named dark matter, the thing that keeps
the universe hanging together. Throughout her career she was never taken
seriously as a scientist because she was one of the only female
astronomers at that time, but she didn't let that stop her. She made
groundbreaking and incredibly significant discoveries that scientists
have only recently been able to really appreciate-and she changed the
way that we look at the universe. A stunning portrait of a little-known
trailblazer, The Stuff Between the Stars tells Vera's story and inspires the youngest readers who are just starting to look up at the stars.
