Exploring Space Robots by Deborah Kops

How can robots help us explore space? A probe called New Horizons is zooming through the outer solar system. It's headed to Pluto. It and other space robots can go where people cannot survive. In this book, you'll learn how robots can work as our eyes, ears, and hands in space. As part of the Searchlight Books™ collection, this series explores outer space and sheds light on the question What's Amazing about Space? Fantastic photos, kid-friendly explanations of science concepts, and useful diagrams will help you discover the answers!
