A little about Aston
Aston Smith is a keen aspiring astronomer with a fascination of space, time, everything in the observable universe and beyond. So much so, that at the age
of 8 years old, he decided to create and publish a book containing facts about our solar system.
Living with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), Aston has found researching and creating his factual book
about the space objects in our solar system both extremely challenging and satisfying. His fascination with space and the expanding universe captures his
interest and provides him with focus and a welcome calm to his chaotic frame of mind.
Plans for the future
Aston very much hopes to continue to pursue his interest in both astronomy and being an author. It has been an amazing experience for him and he has achieved so
much with such basic equipment. Aston hopes that one day he can afford a telescope that would allow him to observe some of the most amazing objects in the deep sky.
