Children's Literature
Children will enjoy using this wonderful resource to explore different aspects of space, the solar system and the universe. The author addresses dozens of space-related questions including: How did people first learn about space? How do rockets work? What do satellites do? How do astronauts prepare for space? How does a space probe send data to earth? Will people ever live in space? What space mysteries remain? In addition to answering important questions, this book also contains interesting facts, full-color photos and illustrations, biographical information, stories/legends, a timeline, a glossary and step-by-step activities such as creating a constellation, making a two-stage balloon rocket, measuring moon strength and decoding a binary message.
