Supporting STEM-based learning, this fact-filled book for kids ages 6-9 is the ultimate guide to astronauts, rockets, and the future of space exploration. Entertaining and educating young readers through a combination of close-up images, quirky trivia facts, quiz questions, and fascinating tidbits, it's the perfect book for any kid who loves learning about outer space.

Who was the first person to reach space? How long did the longest recorded spacewalk last? What is the Arecibo message, and how can it help us contact intelligent extraterrestrial life? Find out the answers to these questions and more in DKfindout! Space Travel, which features photographs of space shuttles, satellites, telescopes, and the experts who operate them. This book guides kids through the technical details of space travel, from the planning and operating of government-led missions to the designing of the first fleet of spacecraft for civilian tourists. Readers will also get an unrivaled look at life in space, learning about the rigorous training and exercise that space explorers must undergo both before and after liftoff.

This series covers the subjects that kids really want to learn about--ones that have a direct impact on the world around them, like climate change, space exploration, and rapidly evolving technology--making learning fun through amazing images, stimulating quizzes, and cutting-edge information. The DKfindout! series is one that kids will want to turn to again and again.
