This interactive, fact-filled book takes kids aged 8-12 on a journey through the universe with answers to all of their questions on space exploration - from what the first rockets looked like and the first animal in space to what space food tastes like and what it's like to live in zero gravity.

Astronomy Editor-in-Chief Dave Eicher and Contributing Editor Michael Bakich explore the history of space exploration from the very first rocket in China, to the moon landing, to the latest missions to Mars (and beyond).  They also cover profiles of noteworthy scientists, engineers, and astronauts including Isaac Newton, Neil Armstrong, Mae Carol Jemison; fun sections on space food, UFOs, a timeline of space suits, and how to go to the bathroom in space; and STEM experiments like how to build your own rocket and how to tell time using the sun.

Packed with dozens of NASA photos and charming original illustrations and a pull-out poster, this fascinating book reveals the wonders of space exploration - past, present, and future!
