Rocky Road to Galileo
What is Our Place in the Solar System
OTHER EDITIONS AVAILABLE: Ebook |
Join Harriet, Darwin’s pet tortoise, and Milton, Schrodinger’s indecisive cat on a time-travelling quest of discovery, unravelling scientific exploration and religious beliefs and how they fit together.
Throughout the centuries humans have been looking for answers to BIG questions – how did the universe start? Is there a God behind it? Has science explained away the need for a God, or can faith enhance scientific discovery?
On this adventure, Harriet and Milton are investigating our place in the universe. Step into Harriet and Milton’s time machine, bring some snacks, and enjoy this curious quest of discovery – from the Islamic Golden Age to the Renaissance, and meet Galileo!
Written by Julia Golding, winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2006, and the Nestle Smarties Book Prize 2006.

Enjoy this series and learn more about science and the enriching dialogue between science and faith." Prof Rolf Heuer, Director General of CERN from 2009 to 2015
