Astronaut: Dr. Mae Jemison The 100 Year Starship.
What would we find if we made it all the way to another star's solar system?
So far, our travels into outer space have been limited to the planets and moons surrounding the sun in our own solar system. Today's astronomers are planning a mission to explore further reaches of space than humans have ever reached. Readers (Grades 3-5) will discover how these bold scientists are working to build faster spaceships and overcome the obstacles that make it difficult for humans to survive in outer space.
For hundreds of years, curious scientists have been studying these planets and moons and learning more about them. Readers will learn about the many methods astronomers have used to study our solar system, from the basic telescopes of the 17th century to today's advanced space probes.
