Серия: "-"

Here is a training class that shows children how to pilot different kinds of spacecraft. Filled with stats and facts, this book covers essential space science, plus the latest space hardware, gadgets, and know-how. An introductory Astronaut School section looks at the technology of space travel. In Orbit takes children into space, putting them in the hot seat on different kinds of spacecraft or at mission control. They learn how to fly an Apollo rocket to the Moon, take a space shuttle to the International Space Station, go on a spacewalk, and ferry a cargo of tourists into zero gravity. The ID section at the back of the book explains how to identify different kinds of rockets and manned and unmanned craft, including probes, rovers, and shuttles.
