This engaging and informative guide to the galaxy, the planets, and the universe brings the incredible experience of a visit to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum into the pages of a fun and fantastic book. Smithsonian Discover: Space is organized as a virtual trip through outer space, starting at the edges of the expanding universe and continuing into the spiral Milky Way galaxy, then arriving in our solar system to explore each planet in turn. When aspiring explorers are done gallivanting around the galaxy, there are 12 solar system fact cards, a large double-sided poster, and glow-in-the-dark stars they can use to create their own galaxies.
