Annotation:Gives children a close-up look at the Moon while answering key questions, including: Why does the Moon appear different every night? What does the Moon look like up close? What is it like to walk on the Moon? This program is based on the concepts outlined in the 'National Science Education Content Standards' for earth science.
Annotation:Contains a survey of space, illustrated with photography of planets, astronomical discoveries, and both human and robotic space explorations. Transparent acetate spreads reveal details not normally visible to the naked eye.
Annotation:You'll uncover amazing facts about the planets and stars, read how people were once convinced that Earth was the center of the universe, and discover how the experience of moonwalking astronauts may someday lead us to become pioneers on other planets.
Annotation:With state-of-the-art illustrations that reveal the anatomy of a supernova; provide a glimpse of the inner workings of a comet; and probe the surface terrain of Mars, Space is a young explorer's guide to every aspect of the universe.
Annotation:How space travel has developed from stargazing, through telescopes and satellites, to space stations...and where it will lead us next.
Annotation:Explores the universe, from cosmic dust to supergiant stars, offering readers a basic knowledge about space and the mysteries that can be found there.
Annotation:Inside, You'll Find: Facts about the largest object in our solar system; Time lines, drawings, photos-and explanations of solar flares, sunspots, and more; Surprising, True facts that will shock and amaze you!
Annotation:Chronicles the formation of the solar system, particularly how asteroids, comets, and meteors were formed, and relates how astronomers learn about the existence and characteristics of these bodies.
Annotation:For thousands of years, people have looked up and wondered about the mysteries of space. Why does the sun shine? How big is our solar system? Where do comets come from? How far away are the stars? This Jumbo Book answers these and many other questions to reveal the secrets of the universe.
Annotation:Jack and Annie present information about the universe, including our solar system, and briefly describe the history of space travel and of the science of astronomy.
Annotation:Introduces "the study of stuff in space," providing statistics, quizzes, activities, and experiments about the stars and planets.
Annotation:The sky is a clear, glittering site where constellations (88 of them) form "provinces." It's not always easy to find the different groups, but this illustrated guidebook will lead you through the stars and make gazing at them a more meaningful experience.
Annotation:The SCHOLASTIC ATLAS OF SPACE illuminates the mysteries of the universe by providing children with a wealth of information about the structure of the universe, astral bodies, space travel, and more.

Annotation:Have you ever wished you could travel back in time? Or visit a galaxy light-years away? Or see a star being born? The Hubble telescope has allowed scientists to do just that.
Annotation:Now, with the aid of the venerable Smithsonian Institution, acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon explores the vastness of the solar system, our galaxy, and beyond in a brand-new edition of his popular book.
Annotation:Describes rockets, exploratory vehicles, and other technological aspects of space exploration, satellites, space stations, and the life and work of astronauts.
Annotation:Explores the field of astronomy, including how galaxies like the Milky Way were built, why the Earth spins and how gravity works, what comets and asteroids are made of and how they affect planets, the truth about the man in the moon, why mars is so how and what those rings around Saturn are, and what scientists think about aliens and life in outer space.
