    My 8 year old daughter has been fascinated by this book Not only has it got a shiny space age cover to instantly attract her to it the first image inside is the famous Earthrise photograph taken on the Apollo 8 mission This photo has blown her mind away that everything she knows and loves and which seems so big is so tiny How do people not fall off the bottom of the Earth as well? That 50 year old photo was a great intro to the book and has really piued her interest in this book and the subject It's lovely to see her sitting and reading this book by herself without promptingI have read this book too It really brings the other worldly nature of space exploration across For example out there somewhere is a planet mostly made of diamond name not given in book a planet that may have red grass Kepler 186f and a planet with a blue sunset MarsThe book starts with that photo but also with a foreword by Eileen Collins the first female Space Shuttle Commander who talks about her career path to becoming an astronaut This is a good intro for those aspiring to do the same although later in the book it mentions that future jobs in space may not just be for astronauts Then it goes into the basics like the Solar System and galaxies before focusing on the space race and how it developed through sending objects like Sputnik into space then animals then humans and then humans walking on the moon Reading it in order is uite exciting as each new bit of progress is madeAfter that are chapters on After Apollo 11 including Houston we've had a problem what the soviets did next space stations and speculation of the future where humans could live on the moon or Mars or elsewhere It really is a great book which is further enhanced by all the photos taken from a wide range of sources the great diagrams and the art along the way plus it also gives good coverage to women involved with space exploration too which is good for my daughter to see and something that DK publishing have done well in other books too This book is aimed at children the language is kept simple for children the layout is good for children the chunks of text are bitesize which is good for children However this book is great for adults too We've both had our minds blown

    Review by James age 10 8219This book begins with the Space Race between Russia and the United States trying to be the first to do things like the first satellite the first man in space the first space walk and the first man on the moon Russia got all but the first man on the moon During the time a lot of people were very concerned that the space race would become all out war However plenty of people were excited as well This book mostly skips everything but the first man on the moon so we're just going to skip that as well NASA was getting desperate Russia was beating them to everything So they just decided to hurry plans to put the first man on the moon They used the Saturn V rocket a huge rocket The problem with this is they couldn't just build the biggest rocket in the world because they had to find the sweet spot between how much fuel and how heavy the rocket was Because if they had too much fuel it would make the rocket too heavy but if they had too little they wouldn't be able to make it to space Eventually NASA solved this by creating a 3 stage rocket where after each stage burned its fuel it detached and fell back Most of it burned up in the atmosphere but some survived This reduced the weight for the other stages allowing them to reach the moon However once they reached space they needed a lot less fuel to move it because there was nothing pushing them down This book talks about a lot of things that have not happened yet such as landing on Mars future spaceship designs future space suits advanced robots a Moon base asteroid miners and the like I really liked this book because I enjoy reading about what our future will be like Once I start seeing something like the Future Spaceship in this book I might like to work in the space program
