Entertaining and educating young readers through a combination of close-up images, quirky trivia facts, quiz questions, and fascinating tidbits, it's the perfect book for any kid who loves learning about outer space.

Who was the first person to reach space? How long did the longest recorded spacewalk last? What is the Arecibo message, and how can it help us contact intelligent extraterrestrial life? Find out the answers to these questions and more in DKfindout! Space Travel, which features photographs of space shuttles, satellites, telescopes, and the experts who operate them. This book guides kids through the technical details of space travel, from the planning and operating of government-led missions to the designing of the first fleet of spacecraft for civilian tourists.
