Summary
For centuries, humans have looked up at the night sky and wondered what it's like deep in space, far from Earth -- and now we've begun to find out. We've landed on the moon, put robots on Mars, and sent space probes billions of miles to explore the far reaches of our solar system. With richly detailed cutaway illustrations and wonderfully clear, concise writing, this book tells the enthralling story of how we made the great leap into space and what we've discovered there. Find out what life is like on the International Space Station, what the chances are that we will ever settle on Mars, where in the solar system we might find alien life, and why visiting other stars will almost certainly remain a dream
