The most up-to-date images from space agencies such as NASA and ESA combine with info panels, timelines, interviews, diagrams, and activities you can do at home to help you understand the majesty and wonder of Space.

Discover how to find the constellations and where to look for prominent stars and planets in the night sky, such as Venus and Mars, and how galaxies such as our Milky Way work and were formed. Part of a series of award-winning, best-selling encyclopedias for children, Space: A Visual Encyclopedia is a rocket ride from the beginning of time to the near future, and from planet Earth out to the farthest reaches of the Universe." --
