Description

This book takes a look at exploring dangers in space--one of the amazing aspects of space and space exploration. Through a combination of pictures and drawings, readers can learn about the topic in this high-interest volume that is part of the Searchlight series. The books in this series are divided into chapters that help readers understand the topic as a whole. The table of contents guides students to the topics they will explore, and key words are defined in the glossary. The captions used with the illustrations help build the content and pose questions that will pique readers' imaginations; the images are both current and global in significance. Varied text features such as diagrams, graphs, and charts are a real plus, presenting information in a variety of ways. Each volume contains a bibliography of current books and websites that students can explore if they want more information. In this volume, the author focuses on dangers in space. It helps students start to investigate the objects flying around that might pose a danger to Earth or to those who leave our planet to explore. Readers will learn about asteroids, meteoroids, and space junk that was manufactured by humans. While the dangers are real, this book makes a point of showing that immediate threats are not as grave as they might appear in some movies. In a student's hand, this book will spark the imagination and lead to further exploration. --NSTA
