The Sun, the Moon, & the Stars by Steven BrustOnce upon a time there was a kingdom that lived in darkness, for the sun, the moon and the stars were hidden in a box, and that box was hidden in a sows belly, and that sow was hidden in a trolls cave, and that cave was hidden at the end of the world.
Once upon a time there was a studio of artists who feared they were doomed to obscurity, for though they worked and they worked, no one was interested in the paintings that stood in racks along their studio walls.
Steven Brusts fantasy novel The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars is a tale of two quests, of two young men who are reaching for the moon. And the sun. And the stars.
The Sun, the Moon, & the Stars
My oldest daughter has always loved outer space. When she was small, we would go to the library and look through shelf after shelf, picking out everything with a moon or stars on the cover. We even covered her ceiling with glow in the dark stars. And of course, we read endless books about the sun, moon, stars, and space and still do. Here are some of our favorites.

Much of the astronomical data pertaining to the sun, moon and stars is fascinating but requires an advanced understanding of scientific principles to fully comprehend. The sun has been shining for 4. Electricity can be generated from the sun's heat. Referred to as solar energy, it can be captured using solar reflective panels and stored in batteries or transferred directly into the electrical grid. The sun is made of at least 90 percent hydrogen H and it gives off energy in the process of converting hydrogen to helium He.
