To infinity and beyond!
This out-of-the-world adventure takes young explorers on a voyage of discovery across the universe. From the first satellites to the Moon landings, and from Mars rovers to the possible colonisation of other planets, this handy reference provides an overview of space exploration past, present and future.

Packed with amazing photos and infographics throughout, author Ben Hubbard provides young readers aged nine and above with all the tools they need for space exploration. Starting with a timeline of space exploration throughout the years, he then explores famous events such as the ‘Space Race’ and the first Moon landings, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took the first steps on the Moon’s surface in 1969.

Young readers will then discover so-called traveller’s guides to all eight planets in our Solar System (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune), the icy dwarf planet Pluto and the Sun, as well as asteroids and comets. You’ll then end with a search for extraterrestrial life, the failures with previous space travel and what the future of space exploration might look like.
