Facts from Space!: From Super-Secret Spacecraft to Volcanoes in Outer Space, Extraterrestrial Facts to Blow Your Mind! by Dean Regas

A guided tour through the universe--and beyond!

From the sun's super-hot core to the many moons of Neptune, we're traveling to the far reaches of our solar system and beyond! Astronomer Dean Regas presents Facts from Space!--an exciting education on everything outside our atmosphere. Inside, you'll discover space facts and celestial trivia, including:

  • A day on Venus is longer than its year.
  • Early space missions ejected human waste into space, where it froze into intricate crystals that still float in space today.
  • After being in space, some astronauts returned to Earth up to 2 inches taller than when they left.
  • The stars in the Big Dipper are shifting among themselves and will look like a "Big Spatula" by the year 75,000.
  • And more!
Packed with fascinating information, it's a stellar read for sci-fi fans and at-home astronomers alike!
