About the Author: Renowned scientist, award-winning writer and popular speaker Ray Jayawardhana holds the Canada Research Chair in Observational Astrophysics at the University of Toronto. A graduate of Yale and Harvard, he uses many of the world's largest telescopes to explore planetary origins and diversity. Described as a "rock star" among astronomers by Wired magazine and named as one of Canada's Top 40 Under 40 by the Globe & Mail newspaper, his discoveries have made headlines worldwide and led to numerous accolades. An avid traveler, Ray has visited some fifty-five countries, all seven continents, and the Arctic. Ray's scientific adventures have taken him from the steamy depths of a South African mine to the arid mountain peaks of the Chilean Andes; he has camped out on a remote ice field at the bottom of the world for five bone-chilling weeks and experienced the thrill of weightlessness on a parabola-hopping aircraft high above the Atlantic.
