Smithsonian Space! is the big bang of space books, and it's just gotten bigger in a space-tastic new edition! Did you know that the moon was once a piece of the Earth, and that a day on Venus is longer than one year? From the origin of the universe to the future of space rockets, this book has it all. Discover how stars and galaxies are formed, take a trip through the Milky Way, and explore the innards of the International Space Station in an all new edition that uses the latest computer-generated 3-D imagery, eye-catching photographs, gripping information, and explanatory diagrams to bring the wonders of the cosmos to life.
The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum maintains the world's largest and most significant collection of aviation and space artifacts, encompassing all aspects of human flight, as well as related works of art and archival materials. The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center is the companion facility to the museum and houses hundreds of historically significant air- and spacecraft, along with thousands of small artifacts.
