About this book

Exploring Science: Space comes with 19 easy-to-do experiments and 300 exciting pictures. It deals with the stories and the science behind the challenge to explore the cosmos. It offers action-packed information on the history, the people and the science of space. You can find out how the universe began, what galaxies, stars and constellations are made of, and why nothing, not even light, can escape from a black hole. Spectacular photographs and explanatory illustrations capture the thrills of space observation, travel, satellites and communication. Easy-to-do projects show you how rockets work, what it's like to work in space, how to make artificial gravity and solar wind, and much more. Space contains everything there is, from the Earth we live on to the most distant star. This fascinating book takes you on a journey to the Moon, the planets of the solar system and beyond. You can learn about the telescopes astronomers are using to search for extra-terrestrial life among the stars. You can follow the history of space research, from the earliest rockets to the future of space travel. Exciting experiments include making a dish antenna and simulating solar heat. The projects are fun to do and help explain the science and technology of space exploration.
