Cosmic Comics

Cosmic Comics follows the adventures of three ordinary teenagers, who are given access to the fantastic facilities of the Faulkes Telescope South.

Published weekly on Planet Science, the five episode comic will be supported by short articles explaining the science behind the children’s exploits as well as interactive polls and quizzes to test readers’ astronomy knowledge. All five episodes will remain on the website allowing browsers to catch up on any missed episodes. 

The central characters in the Cosmic Comics are Jake, Mara and Ravi who are studying for their GCSEs at the White Horse Academy in Rockley. They are taught by astronomy enthusiast Mr Krater who has managed to get access to the Faulkes Telescope South. The ‘Cosmic Comics crew’ turn their eyes towards the heavens and put our solar system under scrutiny and as they get to grips with using a real research telescope their adventures begin.
