Space may be the final frontier”-but how do we learn about it, look deeper into it, and live in it? The infographics in this book will rocket you through a universe of powerful telescopes, distant probes, and high-speed spacecraft. Get ready to buzz by comets, land on alien planets, peer into the universe’s past, and go where no one (except a handful of rovers and space probes) has gone before! We live in a complicated cosmos, but this book breaks down the complex, the confusing, and the downright kooky to reveal the fascinating details and hidden wonders that are out of this world.
The Details for Awesome Space Tech
Awesome Space Tech is filled with this really interesting infographics. They gives LOTS of details about different types of space tech.
For instance, you can learn about the speed of various space tech. Did you know that Helios 1 can travel at 157.000 mph?
You can learn about five different homes in space (there is more than just the international space station)!
Satellites, space craft, space critters, different missions, telescopes and more. It’s a rather incredible dip into all this space techy!
These infographics vary from one page treatises, to a double page spread. They are loaded with pictures with accompanying text that is easy to read. Some of those pictures are illustrations, and others are pictures.
Everything is really well explained and designed. I was so intrigued! My 14 year old even picked it and found it interesting. I love books that incite my lad to exclaim “Mom, did you know ________ ?” Learning is such a great thing don’t you agree?
