Summary "We've come so far in space exploration in just the past 10 years! Young readers know that NASA sends spacecrafts to space regularly. They may even hear in the news about the incredible photographs and information they send back. But do they know how they work once they're released into space? This book brings STEAM studies to life for even the most reluctant reader by framing science curriculum topics within the awesome field of astronomy using easy-to-understand language and bold graphics."-- Provided by publisher.
