Synopsis

Legendary Journeys: Space by Dr. Mike, Dr Goldsmith

This is the slide-out, lift-up, see-through story of the world-famous space travel!

Starting with man's first experiments 700 years ago, and progressing through the most up-to-date developments in space technology and exploration, Legendary Journeys: Space is the ultimate interactive guide to the quest to explore beyond our planet. From the basics on our solar system, to Moon exploration, satellite communications, living in space, the Space Station, the Space Shuttle, Mars exploration, and contemporary experiments like space tourism--the entire history of space travel magically unfolds in the pages of this book. Ten two-stage sliders with die-cuts and flaps make dramatic features that pull out to reveal amazing details of the world's iconic spacecraft and their inner workings. The pioneers who made space history are there too, including Yuri Gagarin, the first human being to orbit the Earth, Neil Armstrong, the first person to set foot on the Moon, and today's crews who continue man's greatest and most legendary space adventure.
