Space (Ripley's Believe It Or Not)
This bright, action-packed volume reveals the high-tech world of space as you've never seen it before. It not only explains how to look at the night sky and how planets and stars were formed, but reveals fascinating facts about the history of space exploration. Did you know, for example, that Discovery blasted off in 2009 with a bat clinging to its external tank? Informative, off-beat and fun, this lavishly illustrated book will appeal to even the most reluctant of readers.
