Summary

Summary

Our entire perception of the cosmos has shifted, thanks to NASA's startling, crisp images of objects never before seen up close. Using these incredible photos and diagrams as a spaceship, young armchair astronauts can blast off and explore the Sun, Moon, and stars first-hand; check out our Mars missions; look into deep space, and see how the Universe began. They'll master some rocket science, meet the pioneers of space travel, and visit every planet in the galaxy.
Plus : charts for both hemispheres.
