Girls Love STEAM Review:

Additional Reader & Professional Reviews:

"Gehl clearly conveys her subject's childhood excitement about the cosmos and her determination, 'as fiery as a supernova,' to learn more and fire up others. An inspiring book about an influential scientist and the allure of the stars."
-- Kirkus Reviews
