Review by Publisher Summary 2

Your all-access pass to spectacular space stations.   Step inside one of humanity’s greatest achievements with a behind-the-scenes guide to space exploration. Revealing a new perspective into the world of space exploration and the daring astronauts who make it possible, Behind the Scenes at the Space Station takes you on a once-in-a-lifetime tour of the space station. Learn what the astronauts do once they make it to the space station, from experiments to repairs and so much more! Have you ever wondered if plants can grow in outer space? Or how the space station doesn’t break down in outer space? Or how astronauts go to the toilet in zero gravity? Behind the Scenes at the Space Station is a treasure trove of information. Did you know that during a 24-hour period, the space station completes 16 orbits of Earth and the astronauts on board see 16 sunrises and sunsets everyday? Or that the International Space Station is so enormous that it was launched in pieces and constructed in orbit? Brimming with astonishing visuals, step-by-step explanations of everyday space work in action, and job profiles of the adventurous people who make it happen, Behind the Scenes at the Space Station is the perfect way to experience life in space.
