Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0756607310, Hardcover)What's cooler than outer space? Kids and adults alike will enthusiastically assert that astronauts, space ships, and rocket science are some of the most fascinating subjects on (or rather, off) earth. Space Exploration, a stellar addition to Dorling Kindersley's Eyewitness Books series, does this immensely popular topic justice. Learn why astronauts take passports into space! Discover the perplexing mechanics of using a toilet while weightless! View a model of the first planned space station! Kids can also read up on subjects like the space race, moon landings, astronaut fashion, dangers and disasters, and science in space. Abundant full-color photos of everything from dogs in spacesuits to views from satellites complete this zero-gravity exploration, and ensure that if your children weren't already space-obsessed, there will be no turning back now. (Ages 9 to 12)
