The Star Garden is a science news and education website run by Dr Helen Klus.

How we came to know the cosmos explains the simple discoveries we made in prehistoric times, and how we built on them, little by little, until the conclusions of modern theories seem inevitable. This is shown in a timeline of the universe.

The Star Garden covers the basics for KS3, KS4, and KS5 science revision including SATs, GCSE, and A-level physics.
