Deep Space Mysteries


ASK Magazine January 2022. This month we explore black holes, exploding stars, alien school, and the oldest photo in the universe.

This edition of ASK Magazine stars, well, the stars! Solve some deep space mysteries as you soar through the solar systems to see stars, supernovas, and more.


Get up close and personal with the Crab Nebula, without getting pinched, to learn what it is, how we discovered it, and what it can tell us about our world. Learn how stars are born—the space kind, not the performing kind—and fall down a black hole of information about, well, black holes, including tips from an expert astrophysicist on how to find them in the sky. Plus, drop in on some aliens as they discuss aliens (us!). Gorgeous photos and adorable illustrations help guide your kids through space and beyond.
