Summary

The biggest, strangest, and most remarkable Extreme Wonders on the planet are finally exposed and explained! A dynamic full-colour series covering the amazing creatures, technology, and events that surpass the ordinary. Each title explores the most thrilling and awesome occurrences of a specific topic, with exciting tales of the natural world, scientific discovery, and beyond. Extreme Space tells the story of the space travel's incredible dreamers, martyrs, and heroes, from the first notion of space travel hundreds of years ago to the great Space Race of the 1950s and 1960s, the moon landing, the development of space stations, the thousands of satellites on which our planet now depends, and the almost (but not quite) unbelievable possibilities of the future. Discover the earliest inventions that hinted at the possibilities, like balloons and gunpowder, and the latest innovations, such as exotic propulsion systems and next-gen shuttles. The wonders of the solar system are also revealed, along with the details on the search for life on other planets, the future of space tourism, the commercialisation of space, and much, much more!
