The hardcover book is 528 pages long and filled with stunning images. Adults and older kids will enjoy reading about each of these space milestones. Even little kids will have fun looking at the photos and learning about space.
As I read about these scientific discoveries, I am amazed at both how much we now know about space and how much more there still is to discover.
We can take a look at the beginning, the recent past, the present and what the future may hold for all of us who reside on the planet earth.
The Space Book is fabulous for people with a casual interest in astronomy and serious scientists. Jim Bell has done an excellent job celebrating space itself and the people, inventions and discoveries that have helped us learn more about all that surrounds us.
