Summary "Few frontiers have inspired human imagination as much as the final frontier: outer space. What seemed impossible a mere hundred years ago has now been accomplished, as humans have sent astronauts into orbit and onto the moon, and rovers and satellites continue to travel farther out, beaming invaluable data about our universe back to Earth. This illustration-packed title covers the most outstanding events since humans landed on the moon. Missions to the different planets are presented, as are images and details of space stations, satellites, and Mars rovers. Even reluctant readers won't be able to stay away from this visual delight."-- Provided by publisher.
