Summary
"Children will find out about the universe, our solar system, observations of the starry skies, and the mind-blowing wonders of outer space. From the birth of stars to the mysteries of black holes, the Universe has been constantly studied to understand how it works. Learn about icy planets and explosive stars, far-off galaxies that powerful telescopes looking deep into space have captured, observatories and astronomy, and whole new worlds discovered by space-exploring probes in this beautifully illustrated children's book that is crammed with amazing facts about the universe."--Publisher's website
