About the Author

David Stevenson was born in Paisley, Scotland, in 1968, and studied molecular biology at Glasgow University and a PhD in genetics from the University of Cambridge. After a stint in academia, he became a teacher, but continued to write science articles for various magazines including Sky & Telescope. His publications with Springer include Extreme Explosions (2014) and "Under a Crimson Sun" (2014) and he is at work on a new book about weather and exoplanets. Despite a background in Biology, David's father inspired his interest in astronomy from an early age. Exploring the cross-roads of different scientific disciplines is a key interest and motivation in both teaching and writing.

David lives in Nottingham, UK, with his wife and family.
