Space Exploration

by Giles Sparrow

Part of a Series: Space Travel Guides.

“In this book, we’re taking the trip of a lifetime, exploring what it’s like to be an astronaut.” This exciting volume covers many topics related to space, including rockets, putting satellites into orbit, human beings in space, space stations, living with gravity, etc. Students will learn important information as well as fun facts, such as why the NASA planes used to train astronauts are called “Vomit Comets” and how bathrooms work in space. Photos, illustrations, and sidebars enhance the text, and a glossary, resources list, quiz, Web site list, and an index add to the learning experience.
