December issue: Science of Stars As Christmas and the shortest day of the year draw near, AQUILA investigates the enduring mystery of the winter sky at night. Are we all made of stardust? PLUS: Star life cycles, Rocket Art and the mystery of Sirius B.
AQUILA aims higher than other children’s publications. Monthly topics are investigated in a multi-dimensional way, so science, culture, mystery and comedy may appear side-by-side on our pages as we strive to encourage children to be open-minded as well as self-motivated. The content is enjoyed by both children and adults, so puzzle-solving is often an family affair — and as children mature they will often go back again to their old AQUILA magazines and enjoy them again at a whole new level, appreciating the articles from a more mature, enlightened perspective.
