Overview

Weightlessness is only one of the subjects in Space Station Science. The book is divided into five sections: Getting There, Space Basics, Living in Space, Working in Space and Coming Home. Each is filled with wonderful descriptions, comments from astronauts, and amusing factoids. (Did you know that astronauts don't burp while in space?) Share some "Oh, wow" moments with your child as you read about the challenges of surviving in space, the solutions NASA is using to overcome these difficulties and why it's worthwhile going into space in the first place. The book also includes about a dozen hands-on activities, as well as suggestions on where to turn for more information.
