Pre-order The Sun: One Thousand Years of Scientific Discovery exclusive to the Science Museum shop before your visit to our new exhibition The Sun: Living With Our Star opening this October. Stock expected to arrive late August.

Of all natural phenomena, the Sun perhaps has the greatest power to move and inspire us. Dazzling, beautiful, powerful, mysterious – the Sun, which gives us life and shapes our concept of time, has fascinated people throughout history.

This book, written to accompany The Sun: Living With Our Star exhibition at the Science Museum, charts our unwavering fascination with the Sun through a rich collection of scientific imagery. From the first sketch of a sunspot by a twelfth-century monk, to awe-inspiring close-ups taken by orbiting spacecraft, these images can also be appreciated as works of art; a personal dedication from the theologians, artists and astronomers who made them.

With never-before published photographs and illustrations of eclipses and eruptions, the violent solar surface and the planets that surround it, this book will show you the Sun as you’ve never seen it before, as well as the imaging processes that have helped scientists and amateurs alike learn about our nearest star.

Dr Katy Barrett, curator of Art Collections at the Science Museum, and Dr Harry Cliff, particle physicist at the University of Cambridge, are the lead curators of the exhibition.

120 pages. Hardback.
