When working on this project, remember that it's aimed at children. Being understood is just as important as being accurate. Authors should concentrate on the most important concepts rather than getting wrapped up in every detail. Use technical vocabulary when you need to, but don't use big words where simple language would work.

If you have made contributions to this Wikibook and would like to have formal credit for being an author, please add your name to this list: Wikijunior Solar System Authors.
