Summary
Join Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, who will be your guide as you explore the mysteries of the universe. Look at planets, stars, meteors, comets, black holes, and our very own planet Earth. Find out what it takes to train and be an astronaut and discover what it feels like to break through Earth's atmosphere. Learn what's inside the space shuttle and investigate the other planets and moons in our solar system. Finally, consider what surprises other galaxies might hold in this dynamic look at the world of space exploration
