Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New Look! Relaunched with new jackets and 8 pages of new text!



Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the mysteries beyond Earth and its atmosphere. Original photography of spacecraft - both before and after traveling in space - and pictures of astronauts and their equipment offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the history of Space exploration and the daily life of astronauts. See an astronaut repairing an orbiting spacecraft from the outside, the first person on the Moon, fantastic photographs of Neptune, the farthest planet from Earth, and the satellite tracking device that shows how red deer live. Learn how satellites in Space help us to forecast the weather, about the first birth in Space, and how an astronaut's body is effected on reentering the Earth's atmosphere. Discover how a special sleeping bag helps astronauts to sleep in weightless conditions, how machines used on Earth were developed from material originally used in Space, the Large Space Simulator and how it is used to test spacecraft, and much, much more.

Synopsis:

Learn how space probes photograph planets, what causes a meteor shower, what makes Mars red, why the Sun shines, where the Moon came from, how the first telescopes worked, the stages in the life of a star, and how the Earth's atmosphere sustains life. Discover what creates auroras, how the amazing early observatories were built, how Saturn could float on water, the "sound" of our own galaxy, how a comet is formed, and much, much more.
