Ever wonder how spaceships work? Rocket Science is a tour of the latest in spacecraft technology and planetary exploration by real-life aerospace engineer Andrew Rader and illustrator Galen Frazer. Explaining the physics of space travel in a way that's easy to understand, the book is accessible to anyone. It's sure to ignite the imagination of kids of all ages, and even curious adults. How do rockets work? Why do they use staging? What's an orbit? Is there gravity in space? How did we get to the Moon? How would we get to Mars? Could we get to another star? These are just a few of the questions discussed in Rocket Science. Rocket Science is primarily aimed at kids in the 6-10 range, but its illustrations would be appealing to younger kids if parents were reading, and the book is even suitable as a light reader for adults interested in learning a thing or two about space engineering and planetary science. This hardcover book features 42 full spread illustrations by professional graphic artist Galen Frazer. Rocket Science is the third book by Andrew and Galen, the first two being Epic Space Adventure and Mars Rover Rescue, which were aimed at younger kids.
