Science Concepts: The Universe
From our vantage point on Earth, the stars and planets seem pretty quiet. But in fact, the universe is a vast and ever-changing expanse, filled with burning gases, giant dust storms, and enormous asteroids. As human technology has grown, so has our knowledge about the universe. From the work of Copernicus and Galileo to the search for life on other planets, human discoveries in space have come a long way. Well-known science authors Alvin and Virginia Silverstein and Laura Silverstein Nunn take an in-depth look at the worlds beyond our own, exploring classes of stars, the characteristics of the eight planets in our solar system, and the many other celestial bodies that surround us in the universe. The authors also examine the history of the Space Race and discuss the past, present, and future of human space exploration.
