Take a spectacular journey into the farthest reaches of space with the Smithsonian. 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, continuing into the spiral Milky Way galaxy, then arriving in our solar system to explore each planet in turn.
And when kids are done gallivanting around the galaxy, there are 12 solar system fact cards, a large double-sided poster, and glow-in-the-dark stars and planets to turn their rooms into a sparkling space scene. So get ready—the Smithsonian is about to take you out of this world to discover the spectacular science of the universe!
