Outer Space

Outer Space

by Gerry Bailey




This title of the Crafty Inventions series sees the space race gathering momentum as the Apollo program counts down to lift off. Artificial satellites Sputnik and Vostok are sent out to explore, the first 3-stage rocket, Saturn, takes off, followed by the space shuttle, Columbia; a lunar rover with wheels made from piano wire is let loose on the moon, solar-power propelled probes go ever deeper into space and Mariner sends back the first ever photos of Mars' strawberry sunsets. Find out about the stars and space junk, then be a space engineer and construct an astro helmet, a star-gazing telescope, a 3-stage rocket and a moon mobile.
