The Mysteries of Outer Space: 2 (Mysteries of the Universe)
- What is space?
- What is needed for survival in space?
- Is there an end to space?
To most people, space is emptiness, a region that stretches from Earth and the Moon to the farthest reaches between the stars and the galaxies beyond. In his newest book in the Mysteries of the Universe series for young readers, Franklyn M. Branley probes this mind-boggling realm, exploding myths and proposing intriguing new ideas.
In a provocative question-and-answer format, Dr. Branley explores what outer space is really like-- from it's size, composition, and distance, to the comet dust, cosmic particles, and gravity wells that exist there. And he examines the hazards of space and the ways that must be devised for people to survive in its alien environment.
