For adults. Donovan Moore, is the author of What Stars Are Made Of: The Life of Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin. In early 20th century Edwardian England, Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin had to overcome unbelievable obstacles, both scientific and personal, in her quest for scientific discovery – the determination of the composition of stars. However, she was told that her conclusions were wrong by the very man who four years later would prove her theories to be correct. She never received credit for her discovery – until now.
