Space Exploration, a stellar addition to Dorling Kindersley's Eyewitness Books series, does this immensely popular topic justice. As usual, DK Eyewitness Books has produced an excellent portrayal of what the globe is doing and has done with the space explorations. I wish I had this book prior to my recent tour of NASA's JPL in Pasadena, CA. It explains a lot.

Very interesting space book

Though the content jumps around a bit, overall this is a fun book. My space-obsessed child really enjoys all the interesting facts and the fantastic photos. It has recently been updated and now includes a poster and a CD of space clip art. It does touch on some space exploration disasters but it is not overly graphic so the book is still suitable for an early elementary audience.

There is a high standard expected from DK 's Eyewitness series and, as yet,I have not been disappointed.
The highest effort at quality is self evident in the text and illustrations within these glossy pages, my nephew simply loves them.
It gives me great pleasure to sit with him and flip through these books, watching his knowledge grow and expand....and so I am determined to get the whole set for him, well almost the whole set!!

Since President Bush declared his intention to have the United States go back to the Moon, establish a permanent base, and go to Mars, space exploration is in the news again. When I first started going to school my father was stationed in Florida and we would get out of class to go outside and watch the Mercury flights take off, so I remember when space exploration was an exciting idea and when the entire planet watched the first landing on the moon. But then I also remember when we stopped going to the moon and the only time we really paid attention to space missions was when a shuttle was destroyed.
This volume on "Space Exploration" for the Eyewitness Books series covers the entire history of these efforts, going back to the dreams of space from ancient sky watching to the speculative writings of science fiction. After explaining what is "space," Carole Stott establishes the idea of people from around the world being involved in the exploration of space, symbolized by Apollo 18 docked to Soyuz 19. The historical survey begins with the first rocket scientists, the idea of the reusable rocket, and the space race, with its early space travelers, and the landing of humans on the moon. The next major section talks about how to become an astronaut, what they wear, how they live and work in space. Sections are devoted to the danger and disasters of space exploration, space stations, and the various satellites and probes that have been sent off into space. The final units look at the future in space, how space technology has been used on Earth, and what lies ahead. Of course, that last bit needs to be updated now, but you have to expect new plans would pop up for the 21st century.
As always this is a book where the photographs are so impressive that you often forget there is some text for each of these two-page spreads. However, a lot of the information is to be found in the captions for all those photographs. The end result is a lot of breadth, which sacrifices depth, but that is the same effect you would get if you were at a museum getting to see all of these things in person. Of course, no museum on Earth (or in space) has all of these items, which range from the patch worn by the first Mongolian in space to toys from McDonalds that encourage youth interest in space. Do not be surprised when young readers get excited by seeing how astronauts sleep and drink Coke in space.

As usual, DK Eyewitness Books has produced an excellent portrayal of what the globe is doing and has done with the space explorations. I wish I had this book prior to my recent tour of NASA's JPL in Pasadena, CA. It explains a lot. I really like the arrangement of the book, it's illustrations and photographs make it vary engaging. I liked this book and learned a good deal. I also like the way updated information is added to the book over time.
My son loves science, inventions, space, astronauts, all that typical young boy stuff. This is right up his alley. It came with a poster for his room. He is impressed. It is a bit scattered for my taste, some stuff here, some there, no real organization. Typical of DK Eyewitness books, though, and we knew this going in.
