 It’s no secret that space has always fascinated humans.

Yet only a few have been daring enough to travel beyond the surface of the Earth. From the first man and woman in space to the moon landings to building the International Space Station in orbit, the history of space exploration is filled with peril, bravery, and strokes of genius.

  • Katherine Johnson,

  • Yuri Gagarin,

  • Neil Armstrong,

  • Sally Ride!

Lighthearted and engaging, Space Explorers reveals the thrills and possibilities that lie just among the stars.
